    Looks like a boy from his tail to me. But not really sure.

    OH MAN!!! Are those the "British tailed" Araucanas?! Where are you located? I'm in the US and as far as I know, we don't have those here! But I want them. So there is some serious green envy going on inside me right now. [​IMG]

    The one to the right background is definitely a roo as I can see saddle feathers clearly.

    I think the one in the foreground left is also a roo as that looks to be saddle feathers too, but the photo is more blurry.

    Yes, if Araucana, that would be European/British style. Nice.

    both males. You can see definite saddle feathers hanging down on each bird, females simply don't have those.

    Tailed ones exist but many cull them.. a few keep them around for occasional breeding though.

    The only thing, none of the araucanas here have beards or the small crests.

    Ever checked out the Arkansas blue eggers thread? They are a tailed, blue egg laying bird..
