i am so happy i think i will pick them up soon. they are standard of perfection quality birds, or at least suppose to be very close. i will go out there and pick the ones i want so i will at least get a good looking one. his marans might not be though... they might not be pure pure because they have feathered feet but still lay the egg color they are suppose to lay. but i dont care. i am mostly getting them for the eggs. and he told me the araucanas are rumpless and tufted and are standard of perfection quality.
