Hen or Rooster?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I got this one at approx weeks old, sold to me as an Australorp and a vent sexed hen.

 

Sooty is now about 8-9 weeks old and starting to get a comb.

 

Whats your guess??

Sorry, but that is a cockerel... Aussies get big combs pretty quick, but pullets don't get that red that early... they made a mistake... hmm.png

Cockerel.

Cockerel.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And one man in his time plays many parts."
