    I purchased 3 "arucaunas" back in January and one of them looks decidedly different than the other 2. Any help would be great. The place I got them said I wouldn't be able to tell until it starts crowing which I believe to be false. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I'm thinking cockerel, but agree a pic in natural lighting is always best.

    Just as an fyi, your birds are fully feathered and really don't need a heat lamp anymore unless you're somewhere with extreme temperatures.

    And just to be clear, 20* F does not count as extreme for chickens...

    Ok. I will get some after work today. I thought they needed consistent temps in the 50s, which are not happening in New England yet. Oops. Thanks all.

    If he stands out to you he is most likely a roo. :/At this age it's easy to pick out the Roos. But I dunno.. He's looking kind girl-ish.. :/

    Does he have large spur bumps??? If so he is definitely a rooster.
