Is my australorp a roo?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi there, I was just wondering if anybody could help me with inentifying my 11 week old Australorp chick. She is in a pen with a 12 week old Blue Andalusian. The Australorp (aussie) is very rude and pushy with the Blue Andalusian (andee). Andee has a yellow comb where as Aussie has a red one.  Thanks:)

Welcome to BYC - hopefully you can get a photo posted soon so we can see the bird in question and help you with the gender ID.  A reddening comb at 11 weeks is fairly good evidence of being a cockerel, but seeing it for ourselves is helpful

X2 on Ol Grey Mare; trying to ID a bird without a photo is like shooting in the dark. If you can get a pic posted, we'd be happy to take a look at your Australorp for you. :o)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I agree with BantamFan4Life; and the cockerel looks to me to have a pea comb.
