    I'm almost positive this guy is a roo, but now I'm questioning his breed. As I read about Aracaunas it seems more often than not they are actually Easter eggers or ameraucanas.

    any ideas? THANKS! :D

    It is a Easter Egger cockerel, Araucana's do not have tails and they also have tufts coming from their ears.

    Thanks! I figured.. He's only 5 weeks and is starting to get this puffs of feathers (unless those are just his cheeks lol) but he definitely has a tail.
