Hey yall! I am a chicken addict. I love hearing them, touching them, eating eggs, and eating them! I would love to start my own flock soon as I found out that my city permits having a 'reasonable' amount of chickens with a few other stipulations. I've been deciding on the breeds I'd like and making preparations for them. I don't have a problem sourcing most of the ones I want. The one I am having a problem with is Araucanas. Hatcheries around here (Mid MO) do not sell Araucanas but keep pushing the Americanas on me. I am gracious but tell them I am not interested. Looking around on ebay and craigslist there's people who say they have them but on pictures the layers they have are tailed or surely mixed. I don't know why I'm being a breed queen about this but I'd really like some quality clean faced Araucanas. I don't mind to hatch them either as it could be more economical and fun. Does anyone have any reliable, reputable breeder suggestions?
