    Hi! Picked this up at a produce store the other day. Told it is an araucana. Not certain about the age. Would like to know any clues on sex. As we are in a suburban area, we can't keep roosters... Is it actually an araucana? Also, how old is it?
    Thanks!!

    Doubtful it is true Araucana, as those are usually only available from a breeder... has a tail and see no tufts either...
    Way too young to be able to tell gender... maybe post a pic again in a few weeks...

    Agreed!

    Definitely not true Araucana...no pea comb, has tail, and no tufts/muffs...looks very young, if I HAD to guess, I'd say about 4 weeks (give or take a week)...
