    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!

    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?
