Just discovered this photo of a Quetero hen named "Lima" who is the matriarch of our Quetero colony.
While not a Colloncas or Quetero, this photo of a Crested Mapuche hen was taken in Peru by National Geographic.
The Crested Mapuche is analagous with the Colloncas de Aretes ( precursor of the Araucana) because it is a composite.
Japanese colonists came to Peru in the 1800's. They carried with them, an ancient Japanese cultural treasure breed called Jitokko. They probably only had a few dozen to begin with and predators and weather doubtlessly took their toll.
Though they were loathe to do so, the Nikkei ( Peruvian born Japanese colony) were eventually obliged, due to severe inbreeding to outcross their beloved Jitokko with a native South American breed. The Mapuche and Quechua are often composited - the Mapuche being smaller and more gracile ; the Quechua a somewhat heavy set, dual purpose breed. The Mapuche tends to have more bare facial skin showing. The Quechua tends to be bearded and more prominently muffed.
At any rate, either/both these South American natives were outcrossed with the Jitokko, introducing for the first time, prominent crests in South American stock. Two new breeds were the result of this recombination:
B. NikkeiCrested Mapuche pullet
The Crested Mapuche resulted from the recombined stocks being traded back into the South American Indian villages where it was backcrossed into native stocks of Mapuche. Snowy Nikkei rooster
Conversely, the Snowy Nikkei resulted from the outcrossed Jitokko being backcrossed back into Japanese stock which may have included Minohiki.
Snowy Nikkei generally only lay buffy cream coloured eggs with spots, while the Crested Mapuche produce blue or greenish tinted eggs with spots.
