Araucana chickens also lay blue eggs and they have their own thread, too.
Aruacana have no beards or muffs, only tuffs of feathers off the sides of their heads (like an old mans ear hair lol). They are also rumpless (no tail extending)
Yes there are bantams of Ameracuana, but even pullets lay off tiny eggs at first. We just got one this week. Just like hens can lay rubber eggs missing the shells at first too.
In the breeds area there are threads for all kinds of breeds, where you can see pictures and discussions on standards.
Don't remember who said they were getting BLRW, but post pictures when you get them. We have two, a splash BLRW and a young pullet. The hens is a big ol fluffy butt. Oh and if you want to see all of the cool colors they come in visit Paul's Poultry web site. They breed Wyandottes and call ducks only. They don't sell hatching eggs, do offer chicks, and call ducks in the fall.
