    Pullet, but not an Araucana. It's an Easter Egger pullet.

    For a really good breakdown of the difference between the three(Ameraucana, Araucana, EE), visit www.ameraucana.org.

    Happy Chooks is correct, your bird is not an Araucana, but is an EE (for one thing, Araucanas don't even have a tail).

    Yep--Araucanas don't have a tail. Very pretty pullet.
