    [​IMG] They are actually spelled Araucana which are the tufted/rumpless and the Ameraucana have tails/muffs but not tufted and there are a limited number of colors that are in the standard...They both lay blue/green eggs. Then there are Easter Eggers which muffed and tailed as well and they will lay anything from blue/green to brown from what I was told. You shouldn't have a problem finding any when you are ready. There a lot of folks on here that either sell or know someone that does.

    Don't forget to say "Hi" in the Ky forum... Cindy

    I bought some Ameraucanas from a guy in Waddy recently. They are great birds. Not quite the same as you were looking for, but if you're interested I can find his number for you.

    Someone should edit that intro line before someone else has a stroke.
