    chrisf,
    Very happy to see you have had some good fortune in producing one of the first rumpless Lavender Araucana. Hope the others hatch in two weeks and you get some rumpless tufted ones. Harry

    Cute chicks, but wanted to mention you need to work on your birds combs, if they are all like the hen pictured.

    Araucanas are required to have pea combs - your girl looks to have some outcrossing as her comb looks more straight then pea.


    The chick is adorable!
