    Couldn't resist! So cute with its absent fluff bottom!

    It was there with other "no fluff" bottoms. Any idea what they are?

    Araucana mixes. Not likely purebred, but still pretty rare.

    They had one black, three white, a couple bantams and the grey one. Considered blue I guess but no real lacing. They had one that was crowing which they removed. They said non of the others were crowing.

    From the looks of that second picture, looks like you picked the only pullet.

    Here's another pic. The black one had a really pretty shimmer. I would've gotten that one too but I was scared it was a Roo. They let me check out their coop and look at poo. Lol. It all "looked" normal.

    The Black is 100% male. Just look at those long, thin back feathers, only males get those.

    I thought so. I was going by comb and wattles. And I'd never seen the rumpless ones in person before.

    I know! I wish I knew their story! The whole group was dropped overnight in one drop bin...poor things. I don't know if it's possibly a local breeders cull chickens? They all seemed very healthy.
