    I've got two what I am told were "true blue rumpless" at home. They are wiley things so pics are hard to come by. They are both small (bantams I assume). The hen is totally white and not really developed looking although she just started laying small bluish/green eggs. The roo is not really developed either but is crowing and "fond of" the hen. He is a dirty white with brown/black/reddish streaks on his back. Both are rumpless and non-tufted. Are they aracaunas? Why are their features (combs, etc.) so underdeveloped looking when they are obviously sexually mature? Any info at all would be appreciated and I'll keep trying with the pics.

    We need pictures to be sure of everything. Are you sure that they are actually rumpless? One of my first RIR girls had her tail feathers picked out, and I mistakenly thought I had had some sort of exotic chicken! [​IMG]

    There really isnt any other way to tell except with pictures.
