A breed developed in the 1970's in the United States and later recognized as an official breed in the 1980's. The Ameraucana were bred from "Easter Eggers" aka Mutt birds and were not derived from the rumpless birds, the Araucana. It's thanks to the efforts of Don Cable, Mike Gilbert, John Blehm and Jerry Segler for the breeding and promotion of the original breeding stock of Ameraucana.
We find this breed to be docile and of even temperament.
