The winners of the September Gallery Competition for Blue Wheaten Ameraucanas are in!  This was the biggest submission we've had yet in large fowl and lots of great pics of beautiful birds!  We owe our panel of judges: Rip Stalvey, Walt Leonard, and Tom Roebuck, who donate their time and experience for the long run of this project, a great big "Thank You!"

Sadly, there were no new submissions for bantam Blue Wheatens, so those images will not change on the website.  The other winning photos have been added to the Large Fowl tab of our gallery.

And the winners are:

Blue Wheaten Large Fowl:

Chicks - submitted by Susan Mouw


Pullet - submitted by Lindsay Helton


New! Hen - submitted by Susan Mouw


New! Cockerel - submitted by Susan Mouw


Next up for October - Blue Ameraucanas, so get those pictures in!  Send your submissions to info@ameraucanabreedersclub.org and be sure to put "Gallery Competition" in the subject line.  Please identify each image as to chicks, pullet, hen, cockerel or cock and large fowl or bantam.

Pics should be a minimum of 640w x 400h pixels.  While pictures taken outside have some amazing views, if the bird is covered in grass up to their hocks, it isn't a good representative of the variety, so please - watch your backgrounds in the pics, as well as checking to make sure the full bird is shown.

Good luck, everyone!

Housing, Health & Hatching / Re: Baby Chick Trouble

Mitchell, Shipping is difficult on chicks even in the best conditions. Its not given that they are treated carefully along their journey.  I am not sure how far they traveled or the weather conditions where they traveled.  I would suspect that one chick was just not as strong as the others when the trip started. It sounds like you have them on fortified water and probably good Start and Grow.  You might make sure it is fine enough for them to pick up and swallow. I have added ground rolled oats to the mix at the beginning too.  Give them a chance to get settled and hopefully you will have good luck with the majority of the chicks.

Housing, Health & Hatching / Baby Chick Trouble
« Last post by Mitchell Taylor on September 14, 2017, 09:20:17 PM »
We just received our order of baby Ameraucana chick's and while they all made it alive through the mail, one of our chicks is struggling. It can walk and get around ok but, lays on it's side quite a bit and rolls on its back sometimes and struggles rolling back over. We are making sure it is eating and drinking and have separated it from our group of ten trying to give it a better chance of survival since they (the other chicks) would run over top of it. We are currently supplementing their water with electrolytes trying to help them recover from shipment (9 out of 10 are doing well) along with providing free choice feed and are monitoring the brooder temperature to make sure we are at the correct temperature.

Any information or advice on this matter is appreciated.

Thanks

Mitch and Tiffany
