Hey all! I have three lavender Araucanas all six weeks old today. Can anyone guess the genders? The first one is huge compared, weighing in at 500grams while the other two are about 200... is this normal to be such a huge difference? Also the first one has a crest already, while the other two have none yet. Also - Will the other two still develop crests, just later on? TIA! Ps: I’m in New Zealand, so the breed standard is different for Araucanas than the US :)

Right now I'm thinking #1 is a cockerel, posibly #2 aswell, #3 pullet. Keep us updated, I may change my opinion as they grow. Also where are you located?
