    What is an Araconda chicken? I have looked on the net and cant find any info on it other than people saying look at my Araconda hen...etc....is it a mix of two different ones?

    There is a posting on Craigslist for Aracondas almost laying.....

    There is not a breed spelled exactly like that. I will butcher the spelling, but here are a couple that might fit the bill.

    Aracuana
    Americanna
    Ancona

    Those look like standard easter eggers. Most folks try and call them Araucana which are actually tailless and tuffted.

    It is actually:

    Ameraucana
    Araucana
    Easter Egger (EE)

    The person who put the ad up has EEs.

    Quote:It could also be ancona, as indicated in the next post. I've heard them referred to as anacondas before [​IMG]

    Some people are ignorant of chicken breeds--may know well how to take care of a laying flock, but knowing breeds, even the ones they raise...?
