    What do you think - roosters?? The Blue Laced Red Wyandottes I ordered were straight run, but the Araucana's are all supposedly hen's... Not too sure about this one though.

    The EE in the first pik looks like a roo to me by the large red comb and the legs are really thick.

    You dont have any Araucanas, but you do have a handsome Easter Egger rooster and a BLRW rooster.

    Quote:Hatcheries falsely sell them under the title araucanas. True Araus are tufted and rumpless.

    The Araucana/EE thing, whatever, is beside the point and I don't really want to argue about it.

    I just simply wanted to know if the bird was a roo or a hen, although I did guess it's a roo. [​IMG] Oh well. He looked like your typical Araucana/EE chick - yellowish with the stripes on the back. Very cute [​IMG]

    Well, I certainly didnt mean to offend you by telling you what breed of rooster you had. Most people like to know. My apologies.​
