Main thing to remember- Wheaten orange-lightish red. BBreds can get lightish red but there are still differences, and i believe they should be a dark deep "wine" red without the lemon hackle (yellowish tint at the bottom of the hackle) but have seen people do fine with both.
Thanks so much for the information!!!
Well from the descriptions you have all given, I think he is more wheaten than red.
I love the pumpkin description- LOL
call ducks- I got him in Hampton NB. Yes he is pure Araucana. I have two roos and 5 hens. I tried breeding them this year and managed 2 chicks.... sigh... I will try again in the spring.
I know there is a lady on the Island that has some on occasion.
I'll send you a PM with contact info.
