    I brought this Araucana a few weeks ago.
    It is about 13 weeks old, just wondering if anyone can tell me whether it is a rooster or pullet.[​IMG]

    I am going to say cockrel and not Aracauna. More like a mix breed Easter Egger.

    It is a cockerel, and it is an Arcauna where the OP hails from.

    You are right. I looked them up and did not realize they were sometimes crested and have tails.
