    Quote:If your Araucana's are mature then i'd say you have 3 girls and one roo. UK Araucana's are quite different from those in the USA. The head shots look right but would need body shots to check. maybe try to get shots from side on or above to check for saddle feathers.
    The others i don't know i'm afraid!

    Here's my Lavender Araucana. Yours have better crests but mine has a decent body shape for the breed.

    your Arauacana pics are all the same one except for the 4th....

    The forst ones are probably all boys judging by comb color.

    Smoky73 -sorry i don't know why it did that but i fixed it now.

    ccoomber - there only 10 weeks so not quite mature which is why i am worried that they are boys, thanks for the information, i will try and get some body shots [​IMG]

    In the last pic of the two copper marans you have a pair hen on left roo on right, not sure on the others but the first few pics all look like roos there's an awful lot of red going on in the combs for birds that are 10 weeks.

    i think i have decided the appenzeller with the smaller comb is a girl, she is so much sweeter and just goes all floppy and falls asleep when i pick her up, but he brother just kicks and scratchesm but i would still appreciate any thoughts on my other birds!
