    "Pure Auraucana Chicks-These are the true Jungle Fowl, not the Ameraucana blend. Parents on premises. Only 7 remaining. We will not be hatching more unless ordered. They are growing fast - very healthy. We have some with tuffs, most without tails. Should be some lovely blues. Have an excellent blue hen. "

    The ad says Auraucana, but Im curious, since thats not the right spelling.

    Diffidently araucana. Probably just a typo on the spelling. I do it ALL THE TIME. [​IMG] Love the tuffs.

    $5 is a good price. just be aware that they have a low hatchabilty due to a lethal gene from the ear tufts.

    Do you know if they have tails? True Araucana's are rumpless.
