    1st pic-Roo on the left, pulletson the right

    2nd pic, 2nd picture-Two in the back are roos, the front left and splash are pullets

    Araucana- is a pullet

    BO-I would say its a pullet but there isnt a good shot of the wattles. Most of my BO's have large combs but you can tell by the wattles for sure.

    This is my 5 week old BO. you can see how big his features are.
