Well, I must say I never thought chickens could be so intriguing and addictive until a friend of mine took me around to her friend with a multitude of Polish, Silkies, bantams, and Favourelles. Think I've caught the bug! My first 2 darlings are bantam pullets (Matilda is a Bantam Cochin and Delilah is a lovely lemon Mille fleur coloring). Both darlings and now I am very intrigued by Araucanas and am currently reading up on all sorts of bits about them. Can't wait to see pics of your chicks and learn all sorts of things about these sweet creatures!
