Well, there are the most known, Araucanas, and then there are Manx Rumpless, which are quite rare. What color eggs did they come in?

I had 6 eggs with a few shades, but if I remember they were not the darkest and not the lightest. I got them from a co-worker and I think she sais she had a Araucana Roo also

I think I am going to try to post one/or both on the Auction (free) I have never tried to get rid of a rooster but it seems like it may not be an easy thing to do

I was really trying to feel out what to call them when posting them on the auction

Just because they don't have ear tufts does not mean they are mixed.  Araucana do not always hatch with tufts.  You would want to check with the person you got them from to find out what breeds are possible based on if they separate them or run different breeds together.
