    7484BEC0-1178-48CB-9214-41492C4FEB3D.jpeg image.jpg I currently have two araucana chicks, one golden laced Wyandotte, and a Rhode Island Red chick. They are around one week old and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the 2 araucanas will look like when they grow up. Thank you
    Also, in the second picture it doesn’t show it but she doesn’t have a tail

    Do you have more pictures?
    Where did you get the araucanas from?

    Wing feathers develop before the tail feathers, usually. I have a 5 week old chick that is only just now getting tail feathers that are noticeable, while the other chick of same breed/age has a definite tail (they are straight run in my case and suspect one is girl and one is boy so development may be different for them). Where did you get the chicks from?

    You have lovely easter Eggers, not araucana...... the chick shown has no characteristics of the us or UK standards for the breed

    These are my BBR araucanas, at 1 week and 7 weeks old. They are rumpless and one of them is double tufted.

    Araucanas are very rare to find and expensive (day old sold as $20ea straight run for clean faced). I have seen easter egger labeled as araucanas all the time. They both lay blueish eggs, actually EEs developed from araucana crossing time ago. Still your chickens are beautiful.
