    This araucana is about 12-14 weeks old and I have no idea what gender it is.
    Originally it had two brothers in with it and was very obviously different.
    I sold the two roos and within 2 weeks it's comb had turned red and it was starting to look more roo-ish.
    I have been told araucanas are hard to sex, but any help would be appreciated

    I'm pretty sure that's a rooster.

    I would take a guess at pullet. I'm no expert. The roos as per my understanding have a larger wider comb, than the hens. This one looks to be narrow to me. Lets see what others think.
    BTW, auracanas are supposed to be rump-less, unless they are mixed. How is this one???
