    I think this pullet, who I formerly believed wasn't tufted, actually is tufted! I need another set of eyes to analyze the photos I took.

    Quote:Yaaay tufted! And I really do like her. Even though the boys who are keepers are tufted n rumpless, she is one of the few girls who isn't tailed.

    Nice eye! Those are definitely tufts. Nice cuckoo too. I wish more people actually bred cuckoos for their color though [​IMG]

    Norma, Where are you located? I have a few chicks of various ages that are bi-lateral tufted and rumpless but too soon to be 100% sure of the sex. Seems to take forever to sex some Araucana's. Most are blacks and blues. Charlie

    Quote:I think the cuckoo color is quite beautiful. I'd never really payed it much attention before, but in person, it is very pretty! If only the girl had willow legs [​IMG] but she is definitely a keeper! If enough people work on the cuckoo color, it can become a standardized color eventually, right?
