  • Rumplessness in chickens occurs when birds are missing the coccyx, (or pope's nose or parson's nose) from which the tail feathers emerge. This mutation is congenital and occurs from time to time in birds of all kinds. It is in inheritable, and in the case of chickens, may be caused by either a recessive or a dominant gene – the dominant gene being more common. In the United States, the only breeds of tailless fowl with any sort of documentable history of importation are the Araucana and the Persian Rumpless.
