Araucanas

Nice view of the ear-tufts on a pair of Wheaten or Black-red Araucanas from the UK -- note that these British birds also have beards and mufffs, a disqualification in the US

These rumpless (tail-less) and ear-tufted birds from South America are very hard to find. They are known for laying blue eggs.

A bantam form has been developed.

To save scrolling time, Araucana chicks have their own page.

Here's an ACA article on Araucanas.
