Welcome to Unionhill Ranch

Thanks for visiting us here at UnionHill Ranch! We are a small family farm located in the heart of the foothills of Central California. We have embarked on several small scale farming ventures over the years, mostly out of the desire to become more self reliant. Surprisingly, in the process, we have learned to do many things we never thought we could do!

Chocolate Ameraucana

Ameraucanas are a uniquely American breed derived from South American Araucanas, but improved for fertility and lay rate. Most people mix up Ameraucanas, Araucanas, and any bird that lays a blue egg and calls them all Ameraucanas, or Easter Eggers. Ameraucanas are actually a breed recognized by the American Poultry Association, with a breed standard all their own. They are one of the friendliest birds we have here at UnionHill Ranch. Their sweet temperament and inquisitive disposition makes them a wonderful pet or addition to your laying flock.
