We just got our first chickens last week and couldn't be happier with our new family. The wonderful lady we got them from sorted us out a great variety of 8 pullets, as we're only interested in keeping layers, to start with. We were ever so pleased when she offered us this Araucana as we'd heard about the different coloured eggs they lay, but she did say it was difficult to sex Araucanas at a young age and couldn't be certain that it wasn't a rooster. Unfortunately if she is a he then we won't be able to keep him, so we'd be really grateful if anyone can tell us the sex from these phhotos, or provide advise on things to look for so that we can sex it as it gets older. Also, I've read many articles about Araucanas actually being Easter Eggers, so was also wondering if anybody knew whether ours is the real thing? Many thanks Paul.
