Ameraucanas, known as the “Easter Egg Breed,” are a multicolored breed. They have beards, muffs and a normal tail with a tail head. They are often incorrectly called Araucanas (which have ear tuffs, are rumpless, and do not have a tail head — giving them a bunny tail appearance). Most of the chicks sold as Araucanas are really Ameraucanas, which are excellent, efficient producers of large eggs of many colors and shades including blue and green. Standard weights at maturity are males 5 lbs. and hens 4 lbs.
