If you are interested in Araucanas, the November 2015 issue of Rare Breeds NewZ has a 7 page article about Araucanas written by 'Wolga' with excellent pictures. Here is more info about it:

It can be purchased either via TradeMe or (preferrably because no TM fee is to be paid) by sending me a pm. Proceeds of sales go to the Rare Breeds Conservation Society of New Zealand Inc, see www.rarebreeds.co.nz

Just in case somebody is interested. I've just started a Araucana New Zealand facebook page.
It would be awesome to connect with other Araucana breeders throughout New Zealand to share
pictures and discuss breeding problems. :D
