    Can anyone post some good pics of Araucana tufts vs Ameraucana muffs? I have some rumpless chicks from just this cross that I can't tell if they are tufts or muffs. Still an Araucana x Ameraucana cross but would like to more confident in deciding phenotype. Also with this cross would the rumpless chicks if truly tufted be considered Araucanas?

    This photo shows both beard/muffs & tufts on one bird (note that in Britain that is the araucana standard; however not in the US).
