    I am very new to keeping chicken and don't have a clue what to look for when sexing chicken. ive got one Araucana which I hatched from an eggs, and pretty sure its a roo, due to the tail feathers by looking at other photos on the net.
    Can someone please confirm this before I give him to a friend of a friend.
    Hope the photo work as this is my first post.
    Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    Beautiful color but doubting you on the breed. Saddle feathers look like a boy's

    Do you live in the USA? Our araucanas are rumpless and most have tufts.

    No im in the UK. I keep reading that the UK Araucanas have different tail feathers, would this make a difference to you thinking this is a roo?

    Breed doesn't matter, those saddle feathers always say rooster.
