    Wowsers, lookit the legs on that guy. It is not a purebred Araucana. If anything, I'm tempted to say it's a Araucana, Leghorn cross

    Interesting bird.

    It's rumpless so I have to say at least an Araucana cross.

    He is a rumpless Araucana. If you got him as a hatching egg, I am pretty sure I know where you got him. I had a twin of him that I finally culled because he was mean as a snake.

    Here is one of my boys that is possibly a relative, depending on where you got yours from. This boy is fairly proper in confirmation though, and he has geourgous tufts and an awesome personality.

    I have a suspicion that someone is playing around with white leghorns since they lay white eggs and won't mess up the color of the Araucanas blue eggs. I have seen a few very leggy, mean, and skittish Araucana this last year.
