    Can anyone tell me the name for the color pattern on this araucana? Have you seen a similar one in the US? Thanks.

    I have a bantam araucana roo that color. I call him blue wheaten, but blue red fits also.

    It is an AOV ( all other variety color ) so call it what you want. LOL

    blue breasted red. Note the wing triangle (duckwing).
    Blue red would have a crowwing?

    Despite that unsightly tall, floppy comb (sorry) that is a gorgeous color! I also think it is a Blue Breasted Red, as it, like henk said, has the "triangle," but unlike Wheatens it is too dark red of a color, and holds a lot of black. If it were Blue Wheaten, the non-blue sections would be light, sometimes to an orange extent, with no black whatsoever.
