    I think they also have crests, I was assuming Australian Araucanas. Really want some closer photos!

    They actually are Araucanas. They just are not the American version. http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Arau/BRKAraucanas.html

    Cheers for that. Goldfinches, over here they are called Lawanda Araucana's, that's how I bought them as chicks. We are a little strange here in Oz so we could just be claiming this type of Araucana as ours (we do that a lot). Thank you both, Ill try and get some better photo's. Ill go for the saddle heart_moss (thanks for the new term) I'm a newbie.

    See, I was almost going to say, "Unless you aren't in America", lol!

    Hope they're pullets!

    [​IMG]Thank you. They are the most aggressive of our flock, they are not really aggressive just more so than the rest. Fun little chickens to raise.

    Hi guys. I believe I have an araucana, but I guess they are supposed to be rumpless and this one looks like its getting some tail feathers. I also wanted to know if it was a pullet or a roo. Here are some pictures I just took. The chick is about a month and a half old.[​IMG]
