    I thought I had all hens, but noticed that one of my araucanas is developing quite the comb. All of the girls have a very subtle comb, so I'm now a bit suspicious that I've got a rooster in my henhouse.

    I am new to the breed. Anyone have some insight?

    Definitely a rooster. He is an Easter Egger, too, not an Araucana.

    HIS coloring is similar to a Salmon Faverolle. In fact, I thought that he was one and double check to see what breed you said.
    He is handsome, but not an Araucana.
    Sorry.
