    any ideas if this chick is a roo or hen
    Its a lav/white araucana chick 7 weeks old
    Not the best pic but will try get new ones tommorrow
    I think its acting roo tries to fight with my roo Favorolle chick
    But also tends to get picked on by most of the chicks
    Its a very sensitive chick
    Very Cute I want it to be a hen so I can keep but I need to know
    Before it crows!
    Thanks in advance

    All new pics added today
    Now im almost heading towards hen
    Why do they change so much lol
    And it cant be an EE as was a egg from 2 Lavender araucanas I bought fertile eggs they were blue eggs?

    With a comb that red at 7 weeks, I'm going to say roo. What cute little cheeks!

    Stands like a roo, that tail screams roo, comb says roo. But, honestly, I had a pullet that really fooled me. At 6 weeks I swore she was a cockeral; about 8 weeks she started looking iffy, and by 10 weeks I knew she was a pullet. Good luck [​IMG]

    I would say roo also because the comb is red already.

    I also had one with a very red comb early, and I thought it was a roo, but it's a HEN. Looked really similar to that one.

    I agree the comb is red but it sould go either way. I need a more clear pic of the body.

    Not an araucana--looks NOTHING like an araucana. May be an EE--I assume he came from a coloured egg?
