    I am not sure what you mean by light dark and medium. Here are a few of mine.

    White tufted roo and two cleanfaced light barred hens. All Rumpless

    When you stated that they were purchased from TSC it was a dead giveaway that they are EE's and not true Araucanas. Sorry you were mislead but you are far from being the first victim! But, EE's are wonderful chickens. Great layers of blue or blue/green eggs (usually) and come in all different beautiful color patterns. As a breeder of Araucana's and EE's I do like to point out and educate people of the difference in the two. Hatcheries have been guilty of this deception for too long now. Enjoy them for what they are! Charlie

    Definately EEs and not araucanas but it looks to me like you have 3 beautiful girls. Their colors will stay pretty much the same they are now I think.

    EEs are very sweet birds. You will love them.

    Can EE's be rumpless like the Aracaunas? I too got some from TCS, only they were supposed to be GL wyandottes, LOL, and one is without tail feathers. Just wondering... Thanks.
