    The lovely Pats8e8 made an extra chicken for the chicken swap, well.... a rooster to be more exact! And he's blue.

    And where is the perfect home for a blue rooster?!? With a blue chicken of course!!

    I got my very own squishy today! *dances round the room*

    He's so cool... I can't wait to put him in with the others, this is going to be awesome.



    Isn't he beautiful! I love his tail, so pretty!

    I've eaten those K, when I bought them I just really didn't want to crack them as they are such a beautiful shade.

    He is adorable and the rainbow tail feathers really set him off.
    He will be a great addition to all the chickens, and a rooster's dream, one rooster, surrounded by beautiful hens
    I'll bet he starts crowing as soon as he sees his harem! LOL

    Loretta here's a link to the US Araucana association http://www.araucana.net/

    I couldn't find any reference to them being mean, but it does say that they are 'challenging'. :shock: :lol:

    Oh is he sharp, look at him just strutting around. :lol: As for the blue eggs, my girlfriend told me that last year and said you can get almost any color egg under the sun from chickens. I thought that was pretty cool
