    I believe you have Araucanas, they don't have tails.

    That's what I thought but they Do have blood feathers coming in around the tail area and appear to have a tail bone but I'm unsure guess I'll just have to wait some more to see if an actual tail develops.

    I agree, they look to be Araucanas. Gorgeous birds! [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for the comments and compliments. If anyone is in the Belton area two turned out to be roosters one black one lavender I only need one if anyone wants the other lavender he is free. Since he is an Araucana might be useful to someone for breeding.
