    These girls were all recently rescued from a hoarding situation. So they may all be mutts, but i thought I'd post some pictures and see if anyone has any ideas.

    Predominately game mixes...with possibly some Araucana blood in the rumpless ones. Definitely mixes though. In a hoarding situation it is almost assured.

    EDITED TO ADD: also, in a hoarding situation, you may have malnutrition, which may contribute to rumplessness (no tail growth and shortened vertebra), but I think that generally causes deaths of embyros too.

    Thanks everyone for replying. They are sweet little birds but the bantams are always broody. They finally left the nest so i could take better pictures.
