Araucana hens are not known for being broody and may therefore be unreliable sitters however having good fertility rates they are very easy to breed. Araucana’s are great characters, they are a very friendly breed and generally the cocks are not aggressive. The breed has progressed significantly over the last few years due to the dedication of the club and its members who are striving to maintain the breed standards. It is important when buying birds to remember that Araucana’s are very distinctive birds with triple pea combs, crests, muffs and beards, they do not have wattles, just because a bird lays a blue egg it does not mean that it is a true Araucana.
