    What is the name(s) of a breed of chickens with the fluffy cheeks? And do any of you have pictures of the fuzzy cheeked chickens that you own, that you would like to share? I would love to see.

    Actually, araucana do not have fluffy cheeks (muffs).

    Ameraucana, Easter Eggers, bearded silkies, faverolles all have fluffy cheeks.

    Quote:Just to be even more confusing --

    In many other countries, araucanas DO have muffs. It's mostly just Americans who have to be different! [​IMG]
