This is one of this season's Araucana pullets - from the 'blue' pen
Is she splash? She has much more 'pattern' than other splash birds I've had.

Yes she is :-) that type of splash marking is quite common in orps. I don't know anything about Araucanas from a standards perspective, but just on what is attractive to me personally, I think your bird looks fabulous :-) I love her colouring and the fact she looks quite substantial, and her topknot obvs. Thanks for sharing :thumbs:

Thank you - one of the 'strangeries' of APS2 is that Araucana are in the standards as splash but not blue :?:
