I have no idea how it came about because I don't have any rumpless breeds. But, apparently some of my birds genes lined up just right to produce that tail-less chick. Aracaunas are a rumpless breed, for some breeds it is normal, obviously not for Favorelles though.
She is cute, but a little strange; she spent the first week here hiding under the coop. She came from a homeschooling family who loved them to death, so it's not like she was unhandled .
There is a sort of "bump" in that region, but it might just be her back. (she was fighting for dear life the whole time)
