    Wanted to buy Aracauna chix or hens that lay BLUE eggs. Already have some that lay green, not interested in those.

    You sure they're Araucanas? [​IMG] Sounds like Easter Eggers to me. . . true Araucanas should ONLY lay blue, however few do lay green due to breeding solely for show, it isn't too common.

    I don't sell chicks outside my state, but I do offer hatching eggs of true, rumpless, tufted Araucanas that lay blue eggs. [​IMG]

    Hixnstix,
    There are three exotic sales coming up at the end of this month and beginning of next month where you should be able to locate some true rumpless tufted Araucanas. Just because they are hatched from blue eggs does not guarantee you the offsprings will lay only blue eggs. This is something you will have to work at in your breeding program. If you want to know the dates and locations of the auctions email me.
