Has anyone had any Blue Laced Red Americanas?

I have a pair, and I plan on breeding them next year by them selves to build up the color. They are very beautiful, and maybe on a sunny day I can get a good photo of them! I think this is where the one that hatched the other day came from! You can see him on my other post, under incubation\raising chicks but I was just wandering if anyone has any of these?

They look like this, but this is not them. This is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte!

There are only eight APA/ABA recognized Ameraucana varieties at this time, and blue-laced red is not one of them.

ok, well maybe it is a cross between a red and blue? But All I know is I have a pair that I got from a guy and they are beautiful. Maybe I can breed and create a new color for the apa/aba! Thanks for the reply rhea dean carter, nice to speak with you again!

That's how new varieties are developed. Keep in mind they have to exhibit all of the characteristics of an Ameraucana in order to be an accepted variety. These include white skin, slate legs, white footpads, beard, muffs, pea comb, red earlobes, and of course lay bluish-green eggs.

I know of one breeder who is working on lavender Ameraucanas, and I've seen photos of bantam red Ameraucanas. A few breeders are working with a new variety called black gold and hope to get it standardized soon.

Danny, the way you spell "Ameraucanas" leads me to believe you don't have APA/ABA recognized Ameraucanas. Do you have some of the eight APA/ABA recognized Ameraucana varieties, or are they cross-bred hybrids known as Easter Eggers?

Rhea, can you tell us more about the black gold colour? Sounds interesting
