Ameraucanas have a special place in my heart. Of the first 20-something chicks I bought over 3 years ago there are only 3 left and they are all Ameraucanas. Some folks like to call them ‘Easter-Eggers’ for the blue and green tinted eggs they lay. I have found they are excellent layers and obviously hardy and intelligent to have made it this long. So when I was trying to choose my replacement chicks this year I made it a point to get a few more of these sweet birds. I ended up with 3, 2 browns and a white. I’ve never seen a white one before and thought she deserved her own post!
I love a muffed chicken! Not to be confused with a miffed chicken. Those are not so cool. I should know, I’ve been pecked by a miffed chicken more than once. Come to think of it I have been pecked by a miffed, muffed chicken. Miff-Muff! Stuff and Fluff! Now I’ve got Winnie-the-Pooh on the brain. Oh, bother!
