    I purchase two supposedly female chicks, that were called Araucana. However, I googled Aracauna, and these chicks look nothing like what I saw online.

    Here is #1. Matronly is the first word I think of when I look at her. She's very drab looking, and mostly brown.

    Here is #2. She is spotted black under those wings. So cute.

    Here is #1. Brown stripe on that extends under the wings.

    Aracaunas are pretty tough to find and are usually pretty expensive. They are most likely EE's. (Easter Eggers) they are a crossbreed of Aracauna or Ameracauna and another breed of chicken. They will lay a possible rainbow of egg colors ranging from; golden yellowish, blue, turquoise, green, olive, or even light pinkish brown, depending on what breed the other parent was. The most common colors or eggs they will probably lay are in the blueish or greenish tints.

    I hope this helps! :)
