Great back garden bird. They are hardy with a great resistance to most common poultry-related diseases. The breed is a great flier, so wings will more than likely have to be clipped.
The Araucana Bantam lays coloured egg.
Their eggs are a bluish green and they are treasured for this quality.
They are a good layer with 170-200 green or blue eggs per year.
Friendly but active birds.
