    I find this breed pretty darn cool and I was wondering if anyone on here has some and could shed some light on them. The FeatherSite page only gives so much. I'd like to see some pictures and hear some info about them, purdy puh-lease. [​IMG]

    I have seen a trio in person. The feedstore was trying to sell them for $100! [​IMG] They were really handsome birds, better looking than most pictures I see of them. CaroleAM had some awhile back.

    Hi Alycia,

    I saw a trio at the NEPC show last January. They were gorgeous and since they were lodged right next to my araucanas I got to look at them a few times.

    It apparently is a breed developed more for meat than eggs but still dual purpose for cold climate. They look similar to ameraucanas but are stockier, have different skin color (yellow) and lay brown shell eggs. They are not known for good egg production.

    You are probably close enough to attend NEPC show over MLK weekend in Springfield, MA.
