    I think EEs are a little easier to find. Most lay a sky blue egg too. Maybe you can try them instead.

    I think the OP wants an Araucana. . . There's a difference between having a rumpless, tufted, long-lived, good producing, very good foraging bird with a guaranteed good blue or blue-green egg than an Easter Egger that looks like everyone else's and may possibly lay green or brown eggs.

    No offense to the EE's, I have some myself, but Araucanas are especially rare and unique. [​IMG]


    As for your location, I believe a user on here named cluckcluck42 has Araucanas, but I'm not sure. They're from Canada too. Otherwise, I think Araucanas are pretty rare over there.
