    Hi guys! I have 5 aracaunas all 3 months old from the local feed and seed and I have one, Mabel, that seems to be getting the tufts more prominently, she has a redder face already and has longer feathers just before her tail. Can anyone determine if she is possibly a he???[​IMG]

    [​IMG] She is a pullet, and although she was sold as an Araucana, she is an Easter Egger. There are several on site threads dealing with the differences between Ameraucanas, Araucanas, and Easter Eggers.

    Looks like a pullet to me, but I could be wrong. [​IMG] One thing is for sure, she's an EE rather than an Araucana.

    If you don't mind me asking how did you know about the first picture I posted? The second one properly named Big Kass is crowing from the crack of dawn and I knew he was for sure... The other one though doesn't crow....

    Look at the feathering. The first guy has the long, flowing, 'Fabio' style neck feathers. Classic rooster hackle feathers. The second guy has very obvious male saddle feathers.
