    I was told that this hen is an araucana, but I am not sure. The pictures I have seen of this particular breed do not look much like what I have except for the coloring of the legs.

    Quote:Where are you located? I don't have any araucana's and don't really know anything about them, but I'm pretty sure the EU breed standard and the US one are very different.

    It's pretty whatever it is! Love the colors! Why cant it be a araucana cross? What color are the legs?

    It isn't an Araucana cross because it has a single comb, a tail, and a completely "mutt" type of color. Regardless of what country you're in, Araucanas should have pea combs, and pea combs are dominant to single combs. [​IMG]

    Also, that bird has slate/light colored legs, signifying it does not have yellow skin, which an Araucana should have.

    It looks to me like a mutt.
