    We have had 9 chicks hatched this summer and 5 appear to be roosters to me. Can you tell from the coloration? My hens are dark with little color, but the rooster is brighter white like these here. All of our chickens Are Araucana with green legs. I just want to be sure before I try to sell them.

    Thanks, Kathye

    They're all Easter Egger / Ameraucana roosters, they all have rooster saddle/hackle/tail feathers, and the color.

    Do your hens also have tails? Araucanas are rumpless

    Thank you all for the confirmation. Yes they are pretty, but 6 roosters with 12hens are way to many. :)
