    One of my EE's never grew a tail. I wonder if she might lay blue eggs since she doesnt have a tail of any kind. Ive checked her over and she doesnt have any sort of tail, just a rounded rump. What color would you say she was? There sure is a big difference from 2 days old to 3 1/2 weeks old.

    It looks like she has Araucana traits shining through the mix! She's beautiful.

    It is rumpless. EE's do not have any color standard, so they're found in any and all patterns and colors.

    patridge looking very nice good luck on this bird and her eggs, but not having a rump con not determite egg color, egg color is determined from the genes of the parents

    Her legs are green, therefore she's not a true araucana. She'll probably give you pretty green or blue/green eggs. How fun to have a rumpless one!

    I had a rumpless EE. she went so long rumpless but she finally did get in some tail feathers. So think some of the ee's are slower to develop in some cases.
