I had a guy trying to tell me the difference between an Araucana (rounded-off rump?) and Americana (with a tail). I think this is closer to the Americana, as it was explained to me.

Anyway, the coloring is similar to the hen of Jungle Fowl - the original wild chicken.

Araucana from the UK and U.S. differ greatly. UK allows muffs as in Ameracauna I know for sure. Google Araucana and look at a site from your region. Here is one of mine in the U.S.

I have already spent time googling these fowl...that's why I've come onto this forum. It needs a more expert eye than mine to ID them.

DonnaB,

Thank you for that link.
Didn't know it existed!
Still finding my way around DG, and mainly stuck on the plant forums.
