    HI All

    Very excited! I'm getting 6 Araucanas on Saturday (blacks and whites) They are 1 year old. [​IMG]

    The poor fellow is not well and can no longer take care of his birds

    It's a 9 hr drive there and back but I have been searching for Araucanas for a while.

    Just wanted to share my happiness. [​IMG]

    That's exciting!
    Their little butts look so cute! (Hm that doesn't sound right. Let's rephrase it to: I really like the shape of those birds!)

    So what do their eggs look like?
