Dolley

Araucana? Ameraucana? Easter Egger? Mutt? Much has been written about the mixture of breeds you might get if you buy a chick from a hatchery with any of these labels attached to her. Ours came from Belt Hatchery, and there are similarities to some of the "pure" Araucana photos I've seen on line, but she's clearly a mixture. She lays beautiful light blue eggs, and she's very sweet and smart and brave--she's always the one to chase the cats out of the yard so they can all forage in peace. She's sort of the second-in-command behind Eleanor.

4.25 eggs/week in January.
