    I need help with some sexing. Both are tufted, rumpless araucanas (not EEs as we often see under the label of Araucana). They're turning five weeks old this Friday. The first one I think is a roo. The legs are like burly tree trunks, just huge! Pictures were taken under natural light with no flash, just the sun.

    Next is the other chick, very pretty. I do hope this one is a pullet since I already have a pair of 'keeper' roos, but if this one is a boy, will be a keeper too I think!

    First one look pretty cockeral to me, second one looks like an Easter Egger PULLET I had about 10 years ago. Same feather pattern as a silver phoenix hen
