    Hello, this is our first time hatching chicks and I was told we bought true aruacana rumpless hatching eggs. However I am not sure they are. The 2 have some different features...different color legs, one has tail... Here are some pics, I can get better ones if needed. Also is there anyway to tell the sex? They will be 6 weeks old on wed. Thank you

    Neither is Araucana.
    What color were the eggs you purchased?
    It appears the gold bird has pinkish legs and the silver bird has whitish legs, is that accurate or simply the lighting of the photos?

    Yes you are correct with the color of legs. The eggs where shades of blue.

    They are cute chicks, maybe you can complain to the seller because eggs were not pure.
