There is a pic of our Aracana/Americauna rooster on our chicken photo page if you want to compare (We aren''t risking a roo so close to the suburbs so he, though handsome, went to the local butcher)

You asked if both male and female Araucanas have feathers on the side of their face. This depends on whether you are refering to pure Araucanas, Ameracanas, Easter Eggers, or a mixture. As far as the pure Araucanas, some breeders are getting away from tufts, which look like a handle-bar mustache; the ameracanas have what looks more like a full beard; the easter eggers can have a clean face, depending on breeding. But both male and female can have beards, muffs, or tufts.
