    I got a tufted/rumpless chick 5 days ago, black but with bleed through red(geareduplyn). I waited to see if tail feathers developed before I celebrated. No tail feathers! [​IMG] I just hatched another tufted/rumpless(skyblueegg), and I think it's splash! I will post pics this weekend. I still have one left to hatch and I have 5 from birch run farms that are going in the hatcher tonight. Just an FYI, I have hatched a few batches already and my only tufted chick died at 2 weeks, and I had not hatched any tufted/rumpless. I am so excited!!

    ETA- this is the first time that all of the araucana that went into the hatcher actually hatched, and 3 are bilaterally tufted! Only one of the tufted is rumpless, the fourth is rumpless but not tufted.

    I have no idea what color they are yet, after they fuzz out I will get pics. I can't believe I got 3 tufted in one hatch, I know it's probably not that rare but with the luck I was having I was thinking it was impossible to get any tufted, especially a tufted/rumpless. Well I have to go clean the hatcher so I can set my last 5 araucana [​IMG]
