    I know, I know, probably too early...but I can usually tell sex of my Araucanas by now. I'm leaning towards cockerel with this one but would like other opinions. Color says cockerel but shape says pullet.

    Educate me - why does color say cockerel ? I would go with your evaluation of conformation and say pullet, but it is early for gender ID.

    In person his comb is a darker pink than the picture leads on. My camera sucks and no matter how I adjust the settings the color is dull. Granted it's not as red as another cockerel of the same age, but pinker than the rest of its face.
    ETA: I should have specified color of COMB, sorry!

    I think it could go either way at this point. But oh my word, it’s ADORABLE! :love

    Thank you! S/he is staying regardless of sex.

    Okay, I get it - you were referring to comb color.
