    Hi guys,
    I recently bought two 12-13 week old araucanas. I'm pretty sure the white one is a hen, but I'm worried the lavender one is a roo. I'm new to BYC so still trying to work out how to put a pic on here...

    Are you in Australia? If you aren't they are not Araucanas.

    The lavender bird is a rooster. If you just bought them and paid for pullets, go back to the seller and have them make it right.

    Yes, I'm in Australia.
    I already spoke to the seller and he has agreed that if it turns out its a rooster he'll swap it.
    Thank you!!
