    What made you choose lavender araucanas? I'm always curious to know why people select breeds.

    Thanks for the lovely compliments!

    Hi Keith the random reasoning behind my choice with the araucana was that I shared 4 large fowls with a friend but she has since taken these to keep at her house rather than share on the allotment, so I decided to expand my chickens home from a purpose built coop to a converted shed and large run, I figured that I could house 2 large fowl with them, but as my 5 girls are all bantams I wanted a breed that was very docile as I am bully free with girls and want it to stay that way, so I few a few breeds in mind, but what really swung it for me is firstly they are grey and secondly they lay blue eggs! And that was how the decision was made in my messy head :0)
