    yes, it is a disqualification. Do you have them already? Did you tell the breeder that you wanted them for showing?

    She should put on the cage card cleanfaced araucana and list them as AOV. They will be disqualified if she just lists them as Araucana, because the araucana is a Tufted Rumpless Bird per the showing standard.
