Taking Spring 2023 Chick Orders
The Rumpless Araucana is an extremely rare and unusual bird. The only place to find this bird is from and breeder of Araucana. You will not find it in a large hatchery or farm store. The Araucana is a rumpless bird (no tail) and some are tufted, NOT ALL are tufted. Most are clean faced, or they can have one tuft, or they can have a tuft on each side of the face. They produce a turquoise-ish blue egg, a true Araucana will never produce a pink or brown egg. This breed is the TRUE Araucana, this is not a hatchery bird, and you can NOT get a true Araucana from a hatchery. Having tufts are beautiful but can also be a deadly trait. When two tufted genes from a hen and a rooster are inherited often the chick dies in the shell. So tufted chicks can be difficult to get. We have a nice mix of colors in our flock, we do not keep our colors separate. When placing a chick order you will get a mix of color. Last fall we added in a new breeding line to our flock and we're very pleased with the results. We're super excited to begin our spring hatches.
Pullets ordered now will ship spring or summer of 2023. We fill orders in order of payment received.
Pullets are shipped out around 7 weeks of age. We can fit 4 pullets in a box during the cooler months, however you can order as few as 1. Keep in mind that the hatching and growing process takes time, so please be patient while we do our work and remember we're working with animals. We ship in order of payment received. We text the day the pullets ship out and we can work around your blackout dates.
Included in the shipping cost is a box required by the Post Office along with the express mail fee.
