The Araucana Club of America
The Araucana is a challenging breed that combines the unusual traits of tufts, blue eggs and rumplessness. Tufts are unique to Araucanas, and each is composed of a group of feathers that grow from a protruding flap of skin located near the ear, called a peduncle. Araucanas are rumpless, which means that they do not have a tail, any remnant of a tail, or even an oil gland. There is wide variability in the size and shape of tufts. But a bird with large showy tufts makes an unforgettable impression! .
