    This is my first time raising chicks, and I got 3 arucana pullets and 3 isa brown pullets. Even though I was told they were all pullets, this ones comb just looks different from everyone elses. Worried she may be a he. And I cannot have roosters where I live! [​IMG][/IMG]

    How old? Could you get a better picture? Until I get a better picture I can't be sure but there is a good chance of it being a cockerel.

    And not araucana because it has a tail. It's an EE.

    I realize that now. I am kind of upset as I thought I was buying Arucana PULLETS. I am not sure what to do with him. I cannot have a rooster. :(

    To date, we have a 25% cockerel rate amongst the "pullets" we buy. Oddly our straight run rates are pretty close to the same.

    Unfortunately there is always the chance of getting a Roo. I've got BR purchased as a pulley that is definitely a Roo.
    Not sure where you're living but you could post an add to Craig's list it even here on your areas Forum thread. See if anyone is in need of a Roo. Sometimes that works. If not there is always the option to bbq. Just depends on your situation. Good luck. And cute babies! [​IMG]
