The Rumpless Araucana also has its origins in South America.  It was introduced to Europe by Professor S. Castello in the early 1920’s. The ear-tufts of feathers are unique to the breed in that they grow from a fleshy pad adjacent to the ear-lobe. Rumpless Araucanas lay a large egg in relation to body size and are as productive as the tailed Araucanas.
