    My Araucana chicks are here.. and they sure are different .. my last batch of 25 of mixes breeds all had wee tails.. well you could tell at 3 days they have some sort of a tail.. , these dont have that.. its like they dont have a tail..

    will post pics later after they settle in..

    Quote:Congrats! If they are true, rumpless araucanas, then they really don't have a tail! The rumpless gene causes them to not have their coccyx, which is the tailbone, literally!

    I would say that probably your first batch weren't true Araucanas if they had a tail. Araucanas don't have tails.

    Some one came by to help us cut down some trees and asked me if my two Araucana Bantams were Guinea Hens? LOL
