    I found this little girl last week and had been raising her. She laid a white egg 6 days ago and hasn't laid another one since. She's very friendly. I can't find pictures to show me what she is. AE55EF8F-225F-442C-80F2-4D06B06E8CF0.jpeg 5E44CB0D-3887-433B-BCA2-98E22B52A14D.jpeg

    Maybe Araucana? I have one that looks similar, but mine has puffy cheeks and a small beard. How old is your bird?

    She appears to be a beautiful mixed breed. :)

    I hate to tell you, you probably don't have an araucana. American Araucana are rumpless, with tufts not muffs. UK araucana are muffed and bearded and crested as well.

    Wow. really? I had no idea. I bought the birds a while ago and were told that's what they were. I didn't look into it further because I assumed that was right. Thank you for letting me know.

    Possibly a Gamefowl hen.

    They're also quite rare, at least in the US. Not sure where your at, since you don't have your country in your profile... but the US version is quite expensive.
