Gorgeous Araucana pullet. :o)

post #12 of 18
Hi
We got these 2 araucanas a few weeks ago and were told they were 4 month old pullets.
I'm not sure they are both girls. No eggs or crowing yet.
What does everyone think?
We are in Western Australia.
Smokey






Charcoal






Both

Thanks RavynFallen.
I'm hoping they are both pullets as we cannot have roosters where we live.

How interesting! I didn't know that. I looked up Australian araucaunas, beautiful birds! Makes me wish the ones here were that pretty. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the rumpless birds.
