    I think uk breeds of Araucana are marked different from the usa ( tailed and non ) yet im not sure :O
    But they are 100% blue layers [​IMG] so im led to believe and show winning birds in the uk

    Araucana's don't have top nots...they have tufts...these look almost like Crevecouers... except Crevecouers have tails...is this a new variety that bypasses the lethal? If so, how come nobody told me?Anyway.
    1: looks fairly female, hard to tell from pic
    2: looks more cock
    3: definitely female
    4: can't see face, but coloration looks female
    5: hard to tell, would like to see the entire bird
    the rest are too early to tell for me...the lav color on that bird is lovely..oh, the maran looks female.
