That is perfect!!!! I'm willing to work on it as I've always wanted a roo but was deathly afraid of the crowing. Now that I know it works that well, I am so happy and excited!! thank you, thank you so much!!

No prob! As long as he stays nice, he'll be your favorite! <3

As a breed, no, not that many in America...generally the Araucana is the one you come across in America.

 

As a previous poster correctly stated, any bird could be rumpless as it is a genetic defect.

 

In America, only Araucana are purposely selectively bred for that defect as it is part of the Standard of Perfection. It also makes, in part, for the difficulty in raising Araucnas as the lack of tail can hinder the mating process (the male tends to anchor with his tail for balance).

 

Here are a few more breeds, but they would be very rare in America.

So I called the "breeder" and asked him if it were possible that somewhere down the line, he has Araucana's introduced to his flock. He told me that he actually has one roo and hen in the same pen as his Ameraucana's. I'm not sure if I believe him because he could've just been saying that since I was so excited. This is from the same guy that was acting suspect when I asked him about his Cream Legbar stock than said that he got them from a man that decided he was done with his flock 30 years ago.. Cream Legbars were first imported to the US in 2010 by Greenfire Farms though.. No idea! :idunno
