this is our araucana (hopefully) rooster we purchased 2 weeks ago with 2 females 9all about 18mth old), who im reluctant to post due to their lack of back feathers and butchered wing clips, he was alone with the 2 hens when we got them, who apart from the lack of feathers seem healthy.
hes a really virile boy and has been running rampant with our other 4 hens, so im hoping the missing back feathers are due to his seemingly endless sex drive. they were purchased from a french policeman who breads them for the joy of it, pity he didnt learnt to clip wings properly.
anyway, 1 hour after arriving home and introducing the trio into our small group, we got our 1st egg, with a 2nd folling 30 minutes later.
He's got muffs and a beard, which is something the Americana Araucana breed is not supposed to have at all.
