    I just wanted to share that I purchased two Ameraucanas/EE from ideal and now they are nearly full grown and laying and one has never developed a tail. Is that sometimes a common thing?

    Well actually the araucana(which also lays blue and green eggs) doesn't have a tail, so your EEs are probably a result from an aruacana cross. You can check them out on the breeds index page or the araucana thread. [​IMG]

    Quote:have you felt the back to see if there is a physical tail there? Its a genetic mutation that can come out.
