10 weeks old - need to give it up if it's a cockerel. Thanks for the help!
Answered you in the Araucana thread. Definite cockerel, no doubt.
Quote:Darn.....ok, thank you!
Are you sure that is an Araucana? True Araucana are rumpless - no tail. I would have said a pullet from the size of the comb and body shape - although you will be able to tell for sure in a few more weeks. If it is a rooster, it will develop shiny hackles and saddle feathers.
Quote:Purebred Araucanas can have tails and clean faces. It's a DQ for show quality birds but some breeders use the tailed birds for breeding.
Based on the color pattern and saddle feathers coming in, you have a cute little cockerel.
