Araucanas have a reputation for being really tough and can tolerate the
worst weather conditions. They lay regularly, although our two lay
different sized eggs, with the smaller egg producing a deeper coloured yolk
even though they both have the same diet!
My two Araucanas are bantams. Punk has a laid back character and doesn't object
to being picked up. Her sister, Rebecca, hates being handled. Here in the UK, the breed can have tails (as ours do) or can be rumpless as is more common in the USA.
Their exploits, and those of my other pet hens, can be seen on my blog at www.muckycluckers.blogspot.com
