    Araucana thread anyone?

    I would recommend figuring out which color of araucana you like best and then getting birds in that color. Try not to get a mix of various colors. If you get them all in the same color family ( Golden Duckwing, Silver Duckwing, black, white, blue, splash etc) you will have an easier time...

    Araucana thread anyone?

    Where to get araucana depends on where you live and if there are breeders locally. I recommend joining the Araucana Club of America and start connecting with people that live somewhat close to you. You can only get Araucana from breeders. Some breeders do ship birds. Lanae Cash ACA President

    Breed That Actually Lays Blue Eggs?

    The True Araucana are a friendly non agressive bird. I do recommend them for back yard flocks. Anyone wanting to start raising them needs to have lots of patience. Araucana rumplessness does breed true if your birds come from lines that only breed rumpless birds. The tufts on Araucana do...

    Hardly anyone uses the classified section anymore. The birds for sale are usually word of mouth through members. If you just signed up for membership, I will be sending you out a membership list. Lanae

    Araucana laying brown eggs???

    That is not a true Araucana here in the US. That would be allowable in Europe such as Germany but not here. This is a photo of a True Araucana per the Standard of Perfection here in the US. They do not have beards or muffs ( fluffy faces) Lanae

    Araucana thread anyone?

    He is what is called a crow wing bird. Note the lack of color at the bottom of his wings. Some would call that birchen, but birchen is actually the silver color of this allele. Brown Red is the red color of this allele. I don't think there is a name for the gold color which he is. I would...

    Araucana tend to be fast feathering and so that make barring difficult, however cuckoo araucana definately exist. We have a couple members of the Araucana Club of America who are working on the cuckoo araucana. To explain the difference between barring and cuckoo. A fast feathered birds...
