I am just getting started with the true Araucana's and have 2 mature roosters and have hatched out 4 chicks and have more in the incubator now. In the meantime, my roosters have been living with my egg layers (Ameraucana and Maran hens) and I let them set some eggs a while back. I sorted them out and gave several to my friend who loves them all dearly. We had a trip planned and I didn't want to leave our son with too many to care for, the hatch rate was fantastic. There were 3 that I just couldn't part with so I left them in the pen and I am sooo pleased with them. I'm pretty sure they're all 3 pullets. They are all three fully rumpless and just the cutest chicks. The red one is my favorite so far. It got me to wondering, are there any others out there so I'll start by showing my 3 young pullets that are out of my clean faced, rumpless, true Araucana rooster, I'm not sure which chicks are out of maran hens and which were out of the ameraucana hens but it doesn't matter, they will lay pretty eggs to eat. I can't wait for my chicks to mature, hopefully some will be tufted pullets but as nice as my rooster is producing with non-araucana hens, I can only imagine what nice true, purebred chicks he will produce! The photo of the blue chick looks black but she's definitely blue in daylight. I took these pics in the barn this evening. Please feel free to add your own photo's and information about your true Araucana crosses. Only the true Araucana cross please. I know they're rare and there may not be many people crossing them but while I wait to have pullets for my rooster, I'm really enjoying his mixed chicks.
