Someone told me her favorite chicken is an Araucana. She also has Silkies and Buff Orpingtons. I am thinking of getting some Araucanas, and I'm seeking stories of first-hand experiences Araucana owners have had with these chickens. For example, how long have they tended to live for you? Are they cold hardy, heat hardy, and disease-resistant? If you have had any problems with them, I'd love to hear what the problems were. Thank you so much for your help.
