Caption: This two and a half week old araucana chick is already mostly feathered out. Part of a younger batch of chicks that I photographed before. She has beautiful color patterns but didn't really like posing for the camera.

Well, Kris, this creature is only 2-1/2 weeks old; it will look more like a regular chicken when full grown. And yes, the eggs are all colors. We've had Araucanas before, and the eggs might be blue, turquoise, olive, or cream colored so far as I have seen. Add to those the white, dark brown, tan, or pinkish-tan eggs some of my other chickens have laid, and that made for a very colorful carton full! I'm looking forward to that again -- have 8 Araucana pullets coming along, as well as the older, different breed ones.

A dichotomy, such beautiful feathers on a prehistoric-looking creature! ;) Are these the kind that produce pale green eggs? A friend had Araucanas, I think, and the eggs were just beautiful! And delicious! :)

Thanks, Shirley! 7 of the 8 Araucanas I bought are colored about like this; I could distinguish the last one from the pale yellow hybrid meat chicks at first only by the gray legs and puffy cheek feathers (not obvious here).

Nice! It has really grown and matured so fast!
My son raises his on chicks too and recently
raised a batch along with his for a friend that
wanted layer chickens but was scared
of raising babies.
