    So I was at this chickens stock in Maryland and this guy told me that if you mix an auracana with an americana, that 25% of the chicks will be auracanas. Is this true? I want to breed a few auracanas but don't know if this is really true.
    Thank-You

    Quote:What he meant to say was Easter Egger + Easter Egger = 100% Easter Eggers.

    If you want to raise araucanas you should find a respectable breeder to help you get started. http://www.araucana.net/
