Blue Egg Hen /Araucanas/

I never heard of this before until today, a chicken with ear tufts. There has long been debate whether Araucanas (the breed) were bred from chickens brought by Europeans to South America after Columbus or rather arose from chickens brought, perhaps by Polynesians, directly over the Pacific Ocean from someplace nearer to all chickens’ presumed ancestral home in Southeast Asia.
