    Not sure if this is normal... Some of my 2 to 3 week old RIR's have great looking tails. About 5, however, have no tails worth mentioning. Some have bare little bottoms, some have only 1 little tail feather. Everything I've ever read says RIR's aren't rumpless. [​IMG] do you guys thing they just arent purebred or somthing? Any input or info is appreiciated. Thanks!
