    let me get in on this game...
    i got some eggs off the internet... they were supposed to be pure AURACANAS from a rumpless rooster....
    the only one that hatched is a rooster (of course)he is about 7 month old.... he is almost rumpless???... he only has 3 tail feathers and they kinda point down.. not curve up...
    what do you think???? just want opinions...
    i am trying to decide WHAT to do with him...

    looks like he has partial rumplessness. The breeder may have bred a rumped female to a rumpless male or vice versa. Or it could have just been a fluke of the gene pool.

    He looks like a normal Araucana otherwise...even without the ear tufts.

    Looks like a Silver Duckwing Araucana mix. (That makes it an EE, but a nice one) Doesn't have tufts, isn't rumpless, doesn't meet the "breed" standard.

    Here is a Golden Duckwing Araucana roo pic from feathersite:
