I am sorry if I put this in the wrong section. So I have an older neighbor that had chickens back from the mid 1970's to early 1980's when his girls where young. He said all they ever raised were Araucanas because they loved the colored eggs. I am aware the breed was accepted to the APA in the mid 1980's, but only with certain colors and traits considered standard from that point. Therefore, any "Ameraucanas or Araucanas" from a hatchery are almost always considered easter eggers (by breeders, folks that show, etc.) because they don't necessarily conform to the standards set by the APA. I will never breed or show, and when folks ask me what my hens are I point out the "Easter Egger." But how about my neighbor's hens he used to keep? I have been wondering, since folks called them all Arucanas back then, isn't he correct in calling his that and not Easter Eggers? He likes to come over and chat about the chickens. Any suggestions on how to look at this? I am almost to the point my EE is an Araucana whenever he is visiting. What about pre 1980's Araucanas?
