I've only been back into chickens for a couple of years now. I've had them and then not had them for years apart. Way Way back, I bought chickens with some friends. I think we got 40-50 and split them up. They were very expensive and I was pretty young, so I didn't get a big number of them. These birds were imported from South America, I'm old and it was a long time ago, so some things are vague. They did not lay the blue eggs that I've seen around these days. They did lay blue, but also other colors, no not like EEs either. They had swirls and looked kind of marbled. Most of the time they had the colors of a peacock all swirled together. These birds could also be rumpless or have tails. They had come from SQ birds. We got some of both types. The eggs were anywhere from pastel to very dark and the most gorgeous eggs I have ever seen. I didn't see these eggs again until about 15 years ago. I lived in Union City, CA and I was a bartender. One of my customers/friends came in one day with eggs. I didn't even know he had chickens, but in his basket were those swirled eggs. I was so surprised and bet him to the name of the breed. Araucana. He was shocked that I knew about them. Couldn't talk him out of any or fertile eggs either. I wish I could go track him down now. Anyway I've been telling myself I was going to ask here, but just never have. I was too busy raising, training and showing dogs until a few years ago, so never even thought to show a chicken or I might have stuck with them. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and if so, what are they and where can I get them now?
