    Is is supposed to be an araucauna, but it doesnt look like the others, she is red-brown with blach in her hackle and tail feathers, yellow shanks and feet, and her feathers are kinda like a silkie, they are fluffy, but not like a silkie, its hard to explain. I can get more pictures if you need them. Thanks

    no she looks just like mine unless she is a sexlink than she would have white tail and what not but her tail is all red so I would say for sure she is a RIR
    Oh just read that u said she had black in her tail feathers than she is a RIR because a good RIR is suppose to have black tips.

    Looks just like my RIR pullet, she has these weird feathers, its very hard feathering that freys really easily on the edges and her tail.
    She would be such a pretty hen if she didn't always looks so ruffled.
