Ok, you may be wondering how I could have a 17 weeker and still not know, but I'm a newbie and I really can't tell. This is one of the two runty ones I had that didn't start feathering out until about 6 weeks old. Given their late start to feathering, that could explain why it doesn't have much of a tail yet. (Our Araucanas here in South America may or may not have tails. None of mine are rumpless.) The other runty one is for sure a pullet, but I cannot tell with this one. Some things say pullet, and some things say roo. The legs are long and heavy, but the comb is small and orangey but not red. The dappled light makes her/him look more patterned and colourful than in reality, but in the photo from above you can see the colour and pattern is pretty consistent. So, what do you all think?
