    6 1/2 week old Araucana chick was bought at the local CoOp as a pullet along with 3 others. This chick has a great personality and has become a bit of a favorite of mine. I am no expert but I am pretty sure that by how different it looks from the others that a roo got into the mix :( I will keep him if he is as long as he is nice to the hens but I really wanted all hens.

    Also, pretty sure yours is not SOP because of the tail. 3 of mine have the tail so they're not SOP.

    Standard of Perfection for the breed. You can check out more about them on the araucana website to find out accepted varieties and what to look for.

    I'm iffy. It could be a cockerel. I can't tell if it's single row or triple row from the angle, but the comb is pretty pink and raised for being only 6 1/2wks so it makes me lean toward cockerel. I can't see the rear feathers well enough to see if they're pointed or rounded.
