The Ameraucana is a highly popular breed, known for their beautiful blue eggs.
Ameraucana breed was originally developed in the 1970s, derived from
Araucanas. Ameraucanas were bred to retain the blue-egg laying gene but
eliminate some of the issues associated with the Araucana breed.
We have been breeding Ameraucanas since the 1980s — even before they were admitted into the Standard of Perfection by the American Poultry Association in 1984.
Ameraucanas are medium-sized birds with pea combs, are extremely hardy,
and come in a wonderful combination of colors and color patterns making
a beautiful laying flock. Baby chicks come in all colors, just like the
Ameraucanas are sold as a mixed flock only, and specific feather
coloring is not available. Our birds have muffs, but not all will have
beards. Hens will breed true for egg color.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO GIVE IT ALL YOU HAVE WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE
My husband and I have been married for 11 years. He was born and raised in this community loving farming and ranching. I was raised in Spokane Valley and easily converted into a country girl. With generations of knowledge he started formulating his own animal feed for cows, chickens, and pigs. His feed became very well known throughout the community and our surrounding areas. We both had a dream of entrepreneurship, so we decided to create a store that could be a one stop shop for the community. Together with his knowledge of animals and my love for fashion, coffee and supporting local, we created the Golden Gem Mercantile. With our three boys, two dogs, cows, chickens and our horse we are going on our 5th year and enjoying every crazy minute of it.
