The Arau­cana is a hardy breed which ex­hibits a high level of vigour. They will cope well with poor weather con­di­tions and are suited to both free-range and more con­fined hus­bandry ap­proaches. They are ca­pa­ble of short flight but are not prone to tak­ing to the wing so medium height fenc­ing will be suf­fi­cient. The crest size can vary ac­cord­ing to the coun­try of ori­gin. How­ever, care should be taken not to al­low it to cause vi­sion im­pair­ment, plus reg­u­lar checks for the pres­ence of lice is ad­vis­able.
