    Got this girl at the auction last week and was wondering what breed she is. She doesn't have ear muffs or beard, but she is rumpless.
    Suggestions?

    Not an araucana. (they dont have beards btw), wrong comb, suppose to have tufts but sime dont. She looks just like a black sex link. I really think she is just molting and lost her tail feather, wait and see if they start to grow back

    O and did you just throw her in with your other chickens? That is not a good idea, you always quarientiene new birds for at least a month. Especially coming form an auction, they are exposed to all kinds of bacteria and disease

    I'll bet she's not truly rumpless, if you feel down there I'll bet she has a tail bone and has just lost feathers. Rumpless birds have a body shape to go with the no rump, and she doesn't look like that.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    She's not with the other ones. I have a quarantine pen and she's in there with the other hens I bought at the auction.

    She does have a little "stub" and looks like a bit of a "naked butt", so my guess is that you are all correct! :)

    Thanks again...
