I will eventually sell them, probably through Sandhill Preservation. First I need to do a lot more work to stabilize the genetics.
There are two lineages of blue egg laying chickens. Both have similar origin in a segment of viral DNA on chromosome 1. The South American lineage is the one most people in the U.S. are familiar with. Araucanas are one of the breeds from this lineage. The Asian lineage is not common in the U.S. but has the same basic viral DNA as the South American lineage with the exception that it is offset a few steps on the chromosome. So while I agree that there are probably araucanas in the background of my birds, they are not the only blue egg laying breed to come out of South America and the Asian lineage is not related to them except very distantly.
