Are these Araucans Pure Bred or Mutts- Sold to me as pure bred Araucanas . Got her down to $40.00 for the two and so lucky i did they are very scruffy but nothing a bit of care and a new molt wont do.

All i know is that they have to be either a slate grey color, black or some other plain color like a whitey grey.
They Are Lavender Blue Araucanas, so the coloring is right and there legs are a slate grey as well but im still going to question there pureness.
When i got them home one of the hens laid me her second (Lavender Blue colored) egg of the day, i was so excited when she did this, it was like the 3 hour car trip didn't even affect them!!!

i live Australia, and yes there feathering is like down, exactly like a silkies. I was scared that they weren't going to be pure bred. Do you reckon that i got ripped of- Australian $40.00 for both.
They do lay a lavender blue egg which is what the breed should. They seem to big to be crossed with a silkie.
