I’ve been in love with the Araucana chicken for a while and been looking for a few great birds to buy and add to my growing flock, which is at 30 diverse chickens and counting. Over the weekend I came across a great breeder “Cashs Blue Eggs” and bought 7 beautiful Araucana chickens from her (one is in the picture above). The signature features of the true Araucana will always be their tufts (those cool feathers near their ears). A pair of well-matched tufts on a nice bird are eye-catching, distinctive, and totally unique in the world of purebred poultry. And best of all the Araucana lays an incredible blue egg.
