it seems that this chick has some problem. my chicks behave like that when they are not hungry but they just don't want to leave feed tho the others.
My chick did have some problems but I'm not sure why. Maybe it was the "failure to thrive" phenomenon that Arauacana folks talk about. Chickie would not figure out how to open his beak to eat. He would just sit there and cry because he was hungry but couldn't figure out how to fix his problem.

Finally, he did learn! He is 3 weeks old now and doing quite well. Eating up a storm and gaining about 10 grams everyday, which is good for a chick his size. It seems his tufts are coming out from his chin under his beak instead of behind his ears like they are supposed to. A cute little freak baby he is!

I do not see Araucana on the Diefly Ranch website. She has Silver Penciled Rocks. The site does not seem to be current--has a dead link to the Adult bird page.

Any more information on her status?
I got my araucana Fergie from Shannon, shortly after she quit raising Araucanas. Lanae Cash has my Fergie

I am getting a trio, 75 days old. I hope to have better luck with these as my araucanas are poor layers. anyone else has laying issues with rumpless araucanas? mine lay a few eggs then stop for months. it will be a miracle if I get 50 eggs a year.

My bantam rumpless are egg laying machines... I think it might be either an issue with that line or individual... :confused:
