    Pullet. At this age, a cockerel would have a lot of solid tan feathers on neck and back.

    Definitely not SLW.but golden. Either way they are good. Consistent layers slightly smaller egg. I think even the glw Kay white eggs but could be wrong. They are a good breed

    pullet at this point in time. I think you should let seller know they can't tell the difference between silver & gold laced. They seem to lapse in other areas as well, according to other buyers.

    [​IMG]These are my Araucanas hatched 22 Oct 2016. Still don't know if they are roosters or hens. Can anyone help. One had a red comb and was very aggressive at about 8 weeks so I despatched that one.

    Angela, how many birds total? The only cockerel I'm seeing right off is the dark bird with the reddish feathers coming in.
