    I was told this was an Araucana pullet when I picked it up at 3 days old. Is it an Araucana, and is it female? I'm thinking roo!!
    They were born around the 17th of April!
    Thanks

    I don't know much about the breed, but I'd say you've got yourself a roo.

    Yeah, definitely a roo I'd say. My EE's are just a week younger and they have a very small comb with no redness.

    He is from a feed store and they were ordering from McMurry and they swear they sell araucanas!
    I thought EE, but was hoping for a girl! We already have 2 roos! I just hope he is sweet, my cochin roo just attacked me again, I let him have it with a rake, and then held him for 10 min. Seems he needed a lesson in who's the boss! He is almost a year old! I just hope he doesn't get any meaner or he has to go! I hope this ee is nicer, he and the other EE seem so skidish!
    Thanks for the replies!
