The APA requirements demand a tufted and rumpless bird as an example of the perfect Araucana. That does not mention other traits that must be accomplished as well, like plumage color, skin color, shank color, body type and eye color. Few breeders put focused efforts on breeding to the standard of perfection because of all of the challenges presented. However, this still remains a fun and exciting breed for backyard flock owners and breeders alike. For more info and pictures visit our site
