    i have just purchased 6 new hens, i know i have a welsummer a light sussex a maran a barred rock and a buff sussex but i am really puzzled by this one

    any help identifying this hen would be appreciated.
    the colours are very similar to the welsummer. but has quite a large fluffy plumage on its head.

    i was also told to expect blue/green shelled eggs from this bird.

    For some reason it's not working so try to Google (The Araucana Poultry Club of Great Britain )
