    Hello everyone,

    I have found so many helpful threads on this site to help me with caring for my chickens so far (4 months in) but I've decided to join and see if anyone would like to give me their opinion on the sex of my 3 month old lavender araucana. I have thought female and haven't heard any 'cock-a-doodle' crowing but this bird is very cheeky and has started to stand tall so I'm worried she may be a he!

    Thank you, Kim. [​IMG][/IMG]

    G’Day from down under kimem [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I am not good at gender and have enough trouble picking by own youngsters sometimes. If you do not get an answer here, you might want to try posting some pictures on the ‘What Breed or Gender is This’ Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    You might also want to say hello on your local thread:https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thank you for your reply and helpful tips!

    Usually I have only found my way onto the site via google searches for specific things and I am only using the mobile version at the moment so I will have to do some browsing on the computer later to try and get a better idea of what to post where.

    Thanks again [​IMG]

    Hello Kimem! Welcome to Backyard Chickens. 3 months old I think the comb and wattles would be larger so I'm going to say female.

    That's another thing I was looking out for Flock Master64, thanks for your input. I'm not incredibly worried about it just more curiosity. Will certainly find out at some stage if the neighbours complain. We aren't allowed to keep a roo here in town is the main thing.

    Hello and thank yous to everyone :)
