I'm assuming you mean Araucana instead of maracuna? Both breeds that you've listed are relatively rare. I would suggest the Chantecler over the Araucana, since Araucanas are even rarer than the Chantecler and it is hard to find good quality specimens. Most "Araucanas" that you'd see at county fairs or in hatchery catalogues aren't even Araucanas; rather, they're colored egg laying crosses. which you wouldn't want to show. Chanteclers are a nice hardy breed that you'll probably still have difficulty finding, but they are a better choice than Araucanas in my opinion.

 

Good luck in your search! Welcome to the world of poultry showing. If you have any more questions, I'll be happy to help answer them.:)
