    The Arau-ameraucana is a beautiful cross between an Araucana and an Ameraucana. Their ear tufts still exist but are more of a muff. They are generally docile but cocks can be aggressive. They come in a variety of colours but the most common is Wheaten. They have very small or absent wattles and a pea comb with 2 rows. Shanks are willow or slate, very rarely gypsy. They lay olive or very light blue eggs and don't have a lethal allele combination. Tail is short, beak is horn but may be willow.

    "Super sweet!"
    Pros - All around awesome
    Cons - Doesn't really stay with the flock, kind of a loner.

    It's good that he's loved because my investigation indicates that such a bird is actually an 'Easter Egger'....plain and simple. None the less, if that bird pictured is yours, he is stunningly beautiful.

    'I've read that Canas (both 'Amerau' and 'Arau') normally do tend to occupy the lower levels of the pecking order 'totem pole' .It's probably where Easter Eggers get the trait from.
