    The first looks like a Catalana, the second and third are possibly mutts, probably with Catalana or New Hampshire in them.

    First impression of the first one was Buttercup. Are they really rumpless or just missing thier tails?

    They are truly rumpless.
    Weird! They must be some crossbred with Easter Eggers with Araucana's? That's the only explanation, huh?
    I was going to give them away, maybe I'll keep the weirdo's. Thanks!

    Quote:Ah yes, the first is a buttercup. Didn't even notice the comb was bowled.

    No, there's no EE or Araucana in there. Some breeds do tend to throw out fluke rumpless birds.

    If it truly had Araucana, that comb would be a pea comb, the legs would be yellow or green, and the body would not carry that color.
