They added variety to my flock. The hens I had were more skittish than some of the more docile breeds, yet they are thrifty on forage. They did well in confinement on chicken feed and really enjoyed treats. Some of my hens were finicky eaters, but not my araucanas, they jumped at the chance to try something new. They are skittish and shy, yet very curious. They are fast to seek shelter from danger. The eggs were beautiful, on the small side, but so pretty light blue.
