    this baby's grandma was a hatchery orp, spice, lost her last year - her baby spicette is this little ones mama, half the size of a normal large fowl, daddy being Galahad, my EE roo- so this one will be small- really intriguing- so a rumpless EE??

    how old, might be a roo, as they can be slow getting a tail or someone is plucking it out as there is no rumpless genes in the mix to make it rumpless

    if you feel the nub there should be a tail, if not your ee roo might have an araucana in his back ground. But with my crossing of true araucanas to other breeds, most the babies come off rumpless, and so do their babies.
