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.

 

   40 waxing and waning free-range birds.
 I truly love animals, both male and female, large and small, regardless of how important humans may shallowly deem them.
I will always miss my Dovey Love.

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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
