    I put an order in for 6 females and a rooster of the araucana breed and now i realize they might not be purebred but am i wrong or are they close to purebred?

    I have not seen their flocks, but most hatcheries sell Easter eggers and call them Araucanas, Americanas, Ameraucanas when in reality they are mixed breed chickens carrying the blue egg gene.

    you should ask them and if they are not what you paid for,, They need to apologize and return your money.
    They mcmurray hatchery if they labeled there iten wrong. Also need to make sure they dont sell any more under a false name ..
     
  6. they sell them as Araucanas/Americanas

    I would assume they would be more than likely easter eggers. [​IMG]
