I'm super new to chickens so bear with me and I'll try to provide the info I can: I was given two pullets (we thought) 6 weeks ago. The guy said they were 2-3 months old and from the same clutch of eggs from an Araucana hen and a Rhode Island Red rooster. I'm wondering now if one is a cockerel? S/he is lowest in the pecking order but growing fast. She's very sweet, not very bright, and likes to either hang out with me or the other pullet. Our hen terrifies her but doesn't hurt her. She hardly talks at all at this point. I looked for the beginning of spurs and each leg has a slightly raised lighter spot about an inch up from the ankle. I tried to get a photo but she was not having it. You can kind of notice in in the chicken-butt pic below.
I wasn't planning on keeping a roo but I'm quite attached to this little nutball. Whaddaya think?
Full frontal glory:
Not sure what you can tell from this pic but it cracks me up! Chicken butts are pretty cute.
Here she is with her sister. They look quite different!
