    Hi everyone! I'm new to the site but wanted to introduce myself. We've just started raising chicks (Jersey Giants) but I'm hoping to add some araucanas to our flock. My son loves the look of the ear feather tufts and wants to show them for 4h next year. I asked this on another thread but I'll ask here too. Does anyone know where I can get some araucanas? I looked at some hatcheries but they don't seem to have any true aracaunas. Thanks in advance!

    Are you looking for eggs, chicks, or adult birds?

    I'm looking for chicks or adult birds. Willing to pay premium prices if necessary. Will have them over night shipped if found.

    Overnight shipping is the only way you can even ship any live animals but it's rare if they ever actually arrive overnight. I've had many shipped to me and shipped out myself and it averages 2 or 3 days, the longest was 4 days and I have never actually had any of them arrive the next day. The post office only guarantees 3 days so it's very important to ship when there are at least 3 days of good shipping weather on both ends
