    I bought so called "Araucanas" this past May. They were to have been 6 pullets and 1 roo. WELL I got 6 roo's and 1 pullet. I kept the only Araucana roo, rumpless, and the only pullet. She is now laying BROWN eggs. Banty size to boot. They were to have been LF!!!!! I did get my $$ back but the fact that there are people out there that do not care at all about the birds or the people buying them! I got them from egg bid. Also I got from egg bid BLRW pullets that out of 5 only 1 was. I now know that if I ever mail order again it will be from someone that has references!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Thanks for reading my rant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'd find an arauana breeder on here and order 3 dozen hatching eggs.

    From reading other folks posts on here, there are many trustworthy websites to order from. My Pet Chicken does small orders, I got 9 from there, and they were a mix of 5 different types. They got my order perfect all the way down to all females. (they note having a 90% guarantee rate, with money back if wrong) Good luck with your next group.

    Quote:I ordered eggs from them and I was very pleased! The only egg that didn't hatch was the one extra they sent me, even after I had to chase down the postal truck and had to yell at them for tipping the package upside down! The only complaint I have is that instead of Blue Orph's I got 2 Splash and 2 black. But that is my own stupidity for not understanding the genetics behind it.
