Araucana Hen

Lavender Araucana Rooster

Araucana chickens are thought to have originated in Chile. Araucanas come in a variety of colors: black, silver, white, red, blue, buff and more recently, lavender. Araucanas tend to be friendly and calm and are well adapted to both the heat and the cold. Araucanas lay small blue eggs, and are often confused with Ameraucanas (Ameraucana / Easter Egger). Ameraucanas lay medium to large size blue and green tinted eggs, whereas Araucanas only lay small blue eggs. Araucanas also have a bantam (miniature) counterpart.
