Hi there,

This is my first post here. :hiya:
We hatched some Araucana eggs from Jan/ The Araucana Gypsy, we had a good hatch and they are about 6 weeks old and I need some help sexing them. I THINK I have an idea but would love some opinions please. I uploaded to the gallery but not sure how to put them here.

THanks, Lisa

Hi Lisa welcome to the forum! :D

You did well getting your photos into the Gallery :thumbs:

From there to your post this thread will help you I think: How to put PHOTOS from GALLERY INTO a POST.

( I actually put them here but forgot to open a new tab when going to pick up the link for you so lost my whole previous reply :roll: I'll let you have a go now. :P )

You can edit them into your post if you like by using the edit button for your post.

I have the older siblings to your guys/ girls. Mine are 8 weeks old (all white aras) and at that age they are all starting to get redder combs making it much harder to tell apart.

From your pics I think you are right with your guesses of the sexes, but, until they get older you will not know for sure. Check underneath and see if they have wattles starting to form to be certain - and even then be aware that some cockerals are later developing than others.
