The sex of my araucanas.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I got these two lovely araucanas and I feel like one might be a roo. It might also be too young to tell! They are roughly 5 weeks old. And still inside as we are starting to hit winter and I want to make sure they have all their feathers and will be warm!!

Pooh that's what I thought
"Miss lottie" is quite a lot bigger than "taffy" and their heads are quite different!
The bottom picture is lottie again. But I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking at and how to tell them apart!

I'm not 100 % on that gender guess so don'[t give up just yet.

It's still a bit early for 'feather sexing'.  Hackle and saddle feathers will become pointy on any cockerels as they mature.
