    I just have 3 girls (still hopin' & prayin' that they are) I was told that they were Aracanas, but now I'm not sure. They have tail feathers and no "mustaches" Can any one help me with IDing them?

    They are not Araucana - they are actually Easter Eggers (commonly misrepresented as Araucana/Ameraucana) - how old are they?

    Thanx.....That is what I thought they might be.....That's ok, I was not crazy about the funny looking butts on the Aracanas anyway. They are 9 weeks old now, the pix I showed were from a few weeks back when they were still in the house. Now they out back in our yard in a beautiful new coop and run that my daughters beau created for me. I will post pix very shortly when I can figure out how to transfer the pictures from my phone to the computer!

    Take care and keep on cluckin" [​IMG]
