Hi all! I’m new to this forum and new to owning chickens..so please forgive my ignorance. I bought an araucana (Australian) hen at around 3 months old. Now at 5 months old it’s started crowing so I’m assuming it’s a rooster. It doesn’t have spurs. And I’m questioning whether or not it’s even an araucana. I love this chicken but we aren’t allowed to keep roosters on our suburban property. I want to make sure it’s actually a rooster. Can someone please help identify what I have here? I’ll attach pictures (if I can figure out how!) https://instagram.com/p/BbjGw-5ldrN/
