Is Mr. Fluffy an Araucana?

    This guy is the first "free exotic chick with every order" we have ever had survive...and of course Murray McMurray hatchery doesn't tell you what the free exotic breed is. We are guessing from the rose comb, green legs, and lack of any discernible rump as a chick that this guy is an araucana. I give you, Mr. Fluffy.


    Also in the group of "brown egg layers" was this very striking hen. She is beautiful but we have no idea what she is either.

    Hi, rainy -
    Mr. Fluffy looks like an Easter Egger to me. He's got the beard & muff of an ameraucana, and some unusual coloring. I love the mahogany color on his wings!
    Here's a pic of a true araucana from feathersite.com.

    I can't guess what breed the girl is, but I LOVE her coloring!

    [​IMG] Welcome to BYC! (I have a Jersey Giant roo named Mr.Fluffy Puffy) Your roo looks a lot like a Easter Egger as Mendo said. The hen looks like a Sex-Link, possibly a black.

    x2 on the roo the hen is probably a black sex link the brownish red can vary on them greatly.
