My Ameraucana chickens are show quality, docile, non aggressive, broody and great
mothers. They are good layers and have only laid blue eggs,  never any other color, they
are not Easter Egger's.
My RIW chickens are show quality, very docile, non aggressive, likes attention . They are
prolific layers of large brown eggs, the first year they produced several double yolkers.
My Cochin bantams are show quality, very docile, non aggressive, likes attention . They
are great setters and mothers and will hatch anything I put under them.
I crossed 2 pure breeds to produce a bird that is very docile, non aggressive and very
hardy, by 4 1/2 months they are full size. The hens start laying at 20 weeks and come in all
shades of blue, black and splash, they are bred to be prolific layers of large green eggs and
produce several double yolk eggs the first year.
Hybrid Chicken Info

When you cross two pure bred birds you produce a hybrid
They grow quicker, lay more eggs and lay early then a pure bred bird

Standard Chick feed: 18% to 20% chick starter first 6 to 8 weeks then 20% layer pellets.
Bantam Chick feed: 16% chick starter first 6 to 8 weeks old then small 16% layer pellets.
I use medicated chick starter only.
Only feed scratch grains when you don't care about getting eggs or for just a treat to throw
on the ground for them to scratch to find.
Treats: if there is no green grass - alfalfa pressed cubes, they look like small bales of hay
pressed into 2"x 3" cubes - soak in hot water until re hydrated - they love it.
Treats: Black oil sunflower seeds, scratch grains (milo, corn chops, wheat), fruits & veggies.

Open wounds: use CUT-HEAL, buy it at the feed store under horse meds. Put it on once a
day, others will not pick on it and it will heal fast with no flies.
Chickens love blood so if one gets hurt it is best to take it away from the others until it is
totally healed or they may kill it.

Winter Care: Make sure they are out of the wind and kept dry, if you have an open pen they
must have a good north & west wind block so they can stay out of the cold wet winds.
Lights will help them lay in the winter, just a regular house bulb will work, don't close their
coop up to tight because it is bad for their lungs, they still need fresh air.
Heat bulbs will work in larger coops but make sure they don't get to hot.
I would never put a heat bulb in a very small coop, you will cook them alive.

Summer Care: They must have shade, and have open air from the south so they can stay
cool at night too. If it is hot they will stand in the water to cool themselves, so aways make
sure when it is hot you have a pan of water about 3" deep for them to stand in.
Water misters work great, even if you hang it from a shade tree that they stay under during
the day, it will lower the temp about 10 or more degrees.
