I just got 6 new chickens and I am not sure if they are Araucanas or Americanas, how do you tell the difference? A friend of the family is friends with this guy that just broke up with his gf and wanted all the farm animals gone because apparently he built the farm for her because she likes animals so I went down to look at the chickens and take them as long as they looked healthy, which they did. I was able to get 6 to start, 1 roo and 5 hens. From looking at pictures, I think the roo is a Gold Duckwing Araucana. the hens do have the feather puff things on their cheeks but they are not as big as I have seen in some pictures. I dont have a camera right now but I might be able to get some pics on my husbands camera phone when he comes home. Thanks in advance!
