Really Fowl

June 8, 2009. A glimpse ahead. Darrell showing Roberto Olmos, our dear friend & guide, the Araucana chicken. We will see this bird and it's eggs on Friday in Bio Bio, which is in the south. They are a unique bird which were developed from stocks raised by the native Mapuche by an animal scientist here in the early 1900's. They are know as the chicken that lay the Easter eggs. Their eggs are of different colors. Tan, redish orange hued, bluish, and greenish-blue .
