    Hi, I have an araucana x australorp pullet who has a straight comb, rather than a pea comb, so I don't know if she will lay green eggs. She is 19 weeks old. She almost looks like a bantam and despite being the oldest in our flock, she is one of the smaller chickens. I don't think she will grow much more. Is this because she is half araucana?[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I can't say for sure, but she will probably lay green or olive colored eggs. It's really just wait and see, though. If she still hasn't started laying, she may fill out a little. (Get slightly larger and puffier)

    Welcome to BYC! If she's actually an Araucana mix, then yes. She'll lay green eggs. Pretty girl!

    Thanks everyone! She is definitely an araucana x, can't wait till she starts laying.

    This is a pure araucana we recently got from the same breeder in some ways the araucana x australorp is very similar to her
