    Can you sex Araucana's at day olds?
    Are they a breed that you can tell the sex from but their color, like Faverolles?

    no you half to wait unless you can sex them by there wings I'm pretty sure that works its the roosters that have 2 rows of feathers together and the hens one row is longer then the other i believe if that helps

    I heard that they feather out differently, so yes not day old but at around 1 week.
