    They look like Easter Eggers to me. Not sure about the last one though!

    The last one has whitish legs, so can't be EE. Its back looks like my Speckled Sussex, but the lower parts look too light, maybe a cross?

    THE THREE OF THEM?????

    I only ordered 2... but also got a rare breed chick for free (which I think is lufthansa, the last one)

    Are there any specific characteristics to look for when identifying Araucanas?

    Thank you all for your help!!!

    I am no expert but I think they have the bushy beards and that is how they can be distinguished.

    ok, that's what I thought... the first two: Alegria and Pitágora are Araucanas. The last one: Lufthansa is either my rare bird or a Speckled Sussex Rooster. Make sense?

    thankssssssssss!!![​IMG]

    I thought a true pure bred "Araucana" had no tail feathers (rumpless).

    well, I don't know about the pure "lineage"...She is a WOP!!! [​IMG]
    ...but you are right, I guess these are the araucanas/americanas.
    Any take on the gender of the last one [Lufthansa] ?
