    I had 3 of these araucana that looked sililar. I sold 2 already as their combs were getting red [​IMG] The one I kept is clean faced and tailed but I thought it would look nice running around the place. Now, that the others are gone, I am wondering if she is a he. The comb is now getting larger and a little orange [​IMG] . About 8 weeks old here
    sorry if pic is not great but it really didn't want to stay

    I'd bet pullet. The comb is pretty light-colored still... crossing my fingers for you!

    From the coloration of the feathers I think you have a roo.

    yeah, I was looking at the width at the top of the comb too, it's a bit wide. Such a bummer. So pretty......... [​IMG] . We are definitely roo heavy here. The price of hatching [​IMG]

    It does look like a he but a better pic would make it easier to tell.

    *sigh*, the comb got redder [​IMG] . at such a young age to be that red and big it has to be a roo. well, if anyone local(I don't ship) wants a clean faced/tailed araucana that came from a nice blue egg that is 8 weeks old, let me know.
