    Hi All

    This aracuna chick is pretty aggressive. So I suspect this one a rooster. Can anyone throw more light?

    My araucana pullets have all been aggressive when they were young. The comb on your is a bit wide so I'm thinking it might be a cockerel. You should know in a couple more weeks.

    Thanks for your help. I read online that they are friendly birds. In my case, If I show my hand near the cage, the chick will start to peck from inside.

    At that age a guess is just that-a guess. My guess is rooster, but wait a few weeks to know for sure.
