    This araucana is only young 2 weeks but it's a big bully and the tail feathers are pretty long. Does this mean it is a Roo?[​IMG]

    If you live in the USA, your chick is not an Araucana.

    British Araucanas have tails, but the US SOP calls for Araucanas to be rumpless.

    This chick I named at the very first. She was in a group of 5 guaranteed females. I could always pick her out of the others. She's 4 months now and a beautiful New Hampshire Red rooster. I have 6 chickens total. 4 pullets, one roo and 1 year old Lakenvelder hen who lays an egg for me every day. Now I have to take some pictures :) They are free range. Oh this is Zenya (warrior princess) or I guess prince lol.

    No problem. I would recommend reposting in a few more weeks with updated pictures.
