They are definitely very hard to sex for me. Until about 12-16 weeks I start to notice "back feathers" of the pullets start to become round tipped. Even this hasn't been 100%
Hello. Nice to meet you too. I'm in NSW about 45mins from Sydney. My little Araucanas are all going great! The one people suspected was a roo was correct. We noticed his tail feathers starting to get longer. And just 2 days ago he started crowing.
