I just wanted to post here to say that the "old" club, the Araucana Club of America, is alive and well. At the latest National Meet held Oct 18 in Washington, there were 61 Araucanas entered, and 8 exhibitors. The quality was outstanding, and several Araucanas were on Champion Row. A white bantam hen was Champion AOCCL, and a large fowl black cock was Reserve AOSB.

The ACA Facebook page, "Araucana SOP Breeders" is very active and has 419 members.

Of course anyone is free to set up any club they want, but I just wanted to provide some facts about the original Araucana Club as balance to the negative comments in some of the posts.
