    I ordered (among others) some Golden Campines and Cuckoo Marans. This one below I thought was a Golden Campine, but when I saw another pic on this forum of someone's Cuckoo Maran young roo it got me wondering....which is it? [​IMG]

    Here's an image of what I also think is a Golden Campine:

    Ohhhh.......ok, that makes sense (I ordered Araucanas as well), but thought they didn't have tails?

    Quote:Purebred U.S. Araucanas don't have tails but no hatcheries that I know of in the U.S. actually have Araucanas (or Ameraucanas for that matter) but, instead, they sell Easter Eggers and list them as Araucanas or Ameraucanas.

    The second one is a Golden Campine I have two that are about that age and the first one is a most likely a EE, I have one that looks like that, only mine has a darker coloring. [​IMG]

    Thanks! They all look lovely; I can't wait until they're fully feathered out.[​IMG]

    The first is an EE, and is going to be a very lovely red! It is an unfortunate reality that hatcheries stubbornly mislable their stock when it comes to these lovely birds. I have yet to run into a hatchery that correctly lables their EEs as EEs. They love to mislable them as Araucanas (rumpless birds), or Ameraucanas (muffed bird), both of which you can only get from breeders.
