I recently perchased two birds that were sold to me as last years stock, both hens, both Araucana's. He said the white/splash one laid a pale green egg and the dark one a lovely blue. He said they had both hatched from seperate batches of hatching eggs he had bought off of ebay. He has used the dark one, a little two vigorously, with an Araucana cockerel, to produce his own Araucana hatching eggs, which he in turn has sold on ebay. This is why the dark one is so damaged as she was only recently removed from the breeding pen, and he clearly hadn't put a saddle on her. I felt very sorry for her, so purchased her and he offered the splash one, so I took them both. They are both pretty dirty as they were kept in a muddy field and it has been raining alot recently (jolly English weather I have ordered a saddle for the little dark girl so my other hens dont peck her bald patch. What do you all think I have here? Any words of wisdom will be greatly appriciated!
