    Hi everyone!
    I bought this beautiful bird as a female lavender araucana. The more I look at it the more I think it's a boy, it's still early to tell as it is only 7 weeks old. Whilst they told me I can return the bird in the event it is a rooster/cockerel, I'm hoping it is a female as it is so sweet natured.
    What do you think? And I've been reading up on araucanas and I am so confused now as to whether this beauty actually is one or not!
    At the moment it's name is Jasmine but who knows it could be an Aladdin? ;) [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Welcome to BYC.
    Where are you located? There are certain characteristics of the breed that vary by location as the standards in the US are different than outside the US...but certain wording in your post speaks of being OCONUS, at first glance it does not look to be an Araucana
