We raise 2 varieties of Large Fowl Ameraucana here at Archer's Acres, the Blue and the White. We are breeding toward the Standard of Perfection with a focus on type and egg color. We want birds that are friendly, hearty, lay beautiful blue eggs and you can look at them and know that they are true Ameraucana. We want our blues to have beautiful lacing. And our whites to be pure white with no gold leakage. Our birds came from Stand Alder of Tigercreek Ameraucanas. We look forward to continuing the great work he has down with these varieties.
