Lavender Ameraucanas are not a recognized Ameraucana color variety by the American Poultry Association, yet they are one of the most popular and sought after varieties. Large fowl lavender Ameraucanas were create by John W Blehm in 2005 and are referred to as “self blue” by some. The lavender gene (LAV) breeds true, so a lavender chicken bred to a lavender chicken will produce only lavender chicks. Blue (Bl) looks similar to lavender, but it does not breed true. The lavender variety has feather quality issues associated with it and often it causes frayed or tattered tails especially on males. These are in limited supply. You will love these baby chicks and can watch them grow up to lay beautiful shades of blue eggs for your table.
