    This is supposed to be an araucana pullet, but I'm thinking she is looking a bit boyish. (S)he is about 8 weeks old. I bought 2 at TSC and the lady swore they were sexed pullets and not straight run. I kind of had my doubts and am now thinking I was right. The other araucana I bought doesn't have a noticeable enough comb yet, but this one started to stand out last week. I'm pretty sure it's a roo, but just want to know what anyone else thinks. This will make 7 roos out of 39 if I'm right which means I'll be re-homing my bantam roos and keeping my RIR roo and this one. So what do you think?

    I'm curious as to this one as well. I counted this porcelain d'uccle as one of my bantam roos, but I'm still on the fence because he hasn't really grown much (possible runt?). His comb has looked like that for a few weeks now. His pullet sister doesn't have a noticeable comb and is a lot bigger than him. He's about 10 weeks old.

    Thank you everyone. It's good to know for sure. [​IMG]
    We're definitely going to keep the EE because he has some really nice colors coming in. The pictures really do not do him justice.
