This unusual breed gets in name from the Indian tribe of Chilie where they were first discovered. Our chicks have some Araucana and some Ameraucana blood mixed and consequently are not for show but are beautiful chickens known for their ability to lay colored eggs of shades varying from turquoise to deep olive to shades of brown. Each bird will typically lay a different shade of colored egg that will amaze your friends and make a wonderful "show and tell" type project for school. Adults are of medium size with pea combs and our breeding stock are selected for their ability to produce colored eggs. They exhibit a wonderful combination of colors and color patterns and 10 or 20 of these birds will make an absolutely beautiful laying flock that is extremely hardy and will be the talk of the town. Baby chicks come in all colors, plain and fancy, just like the adults. This is a unique breed and great fun to have when the colored eggs start coming. Our chicks are recommended for egg laying color and ability, not for exhibition.
What does straight run mean in the description?
Straight run means "as hatched", unsexed. We have no indications of knowing how many males or females will be included.
How many eggs can we expect a year?
We do not have an average for each breed. It can vary depending on environment and care. But they are very good layers. So you may get an egg every day with ideal conditions.
What is the difference between Araucanas and
Araucana is a purebreed originating from South America. They have no tail feathers. Americanas (Ameraucanas) are a mix of Araucana and other American breeds. They do have tail feathers. Our chicks are classified as Americanas. We breed for a standard egg color and egg production.
Are these true araucanas? If they are they do not have tails....do these have tails? We are only want true aracuanas.
No, ours are Ameraucanas. We do not hatch the true Araucana breed.
Are the Araucanas that you sell true Araucana's?
Araucanas are a purebred originating from South America. They have no tail feathers. Americanas are a mix of Araucana and other American breeds. They have tail feathers. Ours would be classified as Americanas. We breed for a standard egg color and egg production.
I live in a small town and we are only allowed 4 chickens. If placing an order in June is there any way a person can order 4 different types of chicks and not 15.
The minimum order for shipping chicks is 15. We do not ship less than 15.
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF THEY ARE FEMALES OR MALES
We have professional sexers that sex the baby chicks.
I want a yellow and blue Americana rooster can you gete one or two?
Sorry, our Araucanas can be different color varieties... unfortunatley we are unable to pick certain colors for the customer requests.
Can you prepare and send large number of one day old chicken? (approximately 20000) If yes, how much is the price for each?
Sorry we are unable to ship 20000 baby chicks at a time. Thank you for your interest.
What happens if you order all females and end up with a male?
We do guarantee the sexing 90%.
Best RoosterI have an Araucana Rooster, and he is awesome!!!
Not the least bit mean, never once spurred me or the kids. Very gentle, and doesn't mind people. Have one Araucana hen, and she is a little nervous around people, but lays beautiful green eggs when she's happy. Wintertime she seemed to stop laying, but this spring she's back to work! It's fun to get a green egg now and then for variety of colors in the egg basket!
Love the Birds but DisappointedI adore the birds themselves--they have such wonderful personalities and beautiful colors. They are one of my favorite breeds. I would give them a five-star+ rating. But I am very disappointed as far as their eggs. Their production is okay, but they lay dull greenish eggs (none lay anything like a blue egg) and one lays a brown egg.
