The Araucana is a great and interesting chicken to keep. The British Araucana has a crested too with ear muffs or the Rumpless Araucana does not have a crest but has large tufted ear muffs. 

They are the original blue egg layers, their eggs are unique as the blue colour permeates throughout the shell. All other breeds which lay blue eggs have had Araucana genes introduced into their breed. They are prolific layers and are usually in lay by 20 - 24 weeks of age and will often lay throughout the winter months. Araucana hens are not known for being broody and may therefore be unreliable sitters. They are placid birds and are vigorous and hardy, but are good fliers so we suggest clipping wings. 

The Araucana remains on the Rare Breed Survival Trust Watchlist

Eggs: 250 Blue eggs a year
