    I got this from someone else as a chick and I am wondering if he/she is a roo/pullet? And what is the breed?

    Smokey has no tail and is 6 1/2 weeks old

    I'll get a better picture as soon as it stops raining here and repost it. I think the Araucana breed may be right b/c the woman who sold her to me breeds olive eggers and has marans & araucana stock. Do you think pullet or is it too early/difficult to tell?
