    I have a 2 week old Auracauna and I was wondering if I can find the gender now. She/he has a small but quickly developing comb and very, very small spurs. Just curious.

    I am positive that the chick is a pullet. She has a small comb and beautiful tail.

    THANKS FOR THE HELP

    Even at 2 weeks it would be too early to tell, but if you can post some pics of it, closeups, we might be able to venture a guess, but like I said, at 2 weeks old it would still be a long shot.

    Well, even a cockerel won't have spurs at that age. None get actual spurs until they are well over 6 months old, usually closer to 10-12 months of age. Both sexes have spur buds so you can't go by that.
