    Araucanas are rumpless and have less "poof" in their faces. They just have cheek tufts. Maybe an ameraucana (and Americanized version that is less rare, but still cool).

    Actually, Australian Araucanas have a tail. The standard is different to the American version of the breed.

    x2 in fact the whole European araucana is different than the US araucana. And in the US the araucanas and amerucanas do not have crests but the European ones do.
