    Feed store sold as Ameracauna pullet. This one has no tail feathers and has had poopy but more than the other 5. Seller was kind of rough with chicks. Any chance tail feathers were pulled out or is this a throwback to Aracauna?

    That's an Easter Egger, and yes it is a pullet. [​IMG] That color cannot be carried by roos.
