One is a chipmunk wth no tufts and the other is buff/tan with what looks to be neck tufty things.  the chipmunk one is FIESTY like crazy!  Goes after my kids at less than 24 hours old!

Cuuuute is what they're gonna be!!! Is the chippy one tailed?

 

Not sure what mine looked like at hatch... and I don't have recent pics of them (bad me)... the breeder told me she has SkyBlueEggs.com bantam stock... the cockerels reddened up REALLY fast (by 5 weeks) and one turned from that chippy color/pattern to a beautiful dark blue/grey, and he has willow legs. His comb is kinda a mess and he's terribly skittish though. I'm now inspired to get pictures tomorrow - they're right around 12 weeks :)

The remaining 6 of my original 7 barred rocks are 3yrs old and happily divided between a friend and my mom.
Laying: 2 Partridge Rocks, 1 Columbian Wyandotte and 2 Black Australorps. 14 weeks: 3 bantam Araucana.
Cowed to chicken math and sharing my bedroom with 8 BBS Ameraucana mixes.

Ooooooooo I can't wait to find out!  Thes 2 don't have anything other than the pinkest legs.  One hatched but doens't appear to be doing well that is black with white wing tips - so interesting!

Our EE roo started out looking like the chipmunk one and now he looks like this five months later.

Barred rocks, red sex link, silver wyandotte, white leghorns, mottled cochin banty, silkie, blue swedish and khaki campbell ducks, meat rabbits, white holland turkeys, turtles, cats, and as much garden space as one can cram into a small urban yard half given over to the chickens

Hopefully the tufted one makes it. All I've heard on the Araucana thread, they can be difficult to keep alive! Best of luck to you and keep us posted! I'll post pictures of my kids in the morning when the sun comes out :)

They are definately true rumpless Araucana.  I got them from a reputable source, anyway.  I saw pictures of the pens, of course assuming it was true, but I am pretty confident.  They are definately rumpless.  Now that everyone is totally fluffed up I really can't tell if it is tufted.  It's neck looks slightly different than the chipmunk one, but not significantly so. A black one with some black on the legs (but pink feet area), white wing tips and white belly hatched last night.  It's neck has the same different appearance as the buff one.  It is a very subtle difference from the chipmunk one so I may be seeing things!  And erinszoo thanks for posting those pics - super helpful!
