5 weeks Australorpe Hen or Roo?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on if my 5 week old Australorpe is a hen or a roo? I have another Austra which is same in size & markings

 

just a slight different comb, not sure if it's anything to go by when trying to determine the gender? Thanks all :P

An Australorp pullet will have a comb that is almost black until they approach laying age. A Roos comb will appear pink pretty early on...It's a Roo.
