    Thanks, Owl is the tamest chicken we have. She loves the attention. I have a few more pics, but can't get to them tonight. Need to head for bed. Sister loves the chickens, and loves the attention too!

    Sorry Seminole can't borrow them, you wouldn't return them! LOL

    Hate to say it, but that is an Easter Egger, not an araucana. Easter Eggers are mutts with a blue egg laying gene somewhere in there. Pretty every "ameraucana/araucana" is an Easter Egger if it came from a hatchery.

    Quote:Whether she is or isn't an aracauna, she is friendly! I bought her as an aracauna from Runnings and yes she came from Hoover hatchery. I like her and she likes us. That's all that matters.

    So what is the difference? How can you tell?

    I'm with you! Owl is awesome looking. Any chicken that will let you hold it is a great pet. My Brandy mixed hen is like that. Your little girl is precious, too. I bet my Americauna is really and Easter Egg chicken, too. She's mostly black and her feather's remind me of a black Dahlia which is why I named her Dahlia. She's young enough that I think I can tame her. She's not easy to catch, but once I do catch her she will eat out of my hand. There are places where you can find out whether you have the real pure bred chicken or not. I'll try to find the site and let you know, but like you said....it really doesn't matter if you're not a breeder or shower. I bet you can show even a mixed breed, but I'm not sure. If you can, I'm going to show Brandy!
