Thank you for all your replies. I was not expecting 5 out of 6 to be boys. Is there none of the australorps that are iffy? Sorry, clutching at straws here. Thanks again

Of the 4 Australorps I would be less confident of the first one being a roo but I still think it is. It has huge shanks! I don't put any faith in how quickly they feather out. At that age, the comb is the big tell tale aspect in my opinion.. 

 

What's worse is that there is way too much pink in the comb of the really beautiful araucana, now that you have posted a frontal shot and I might have to revise my opinion to a full 6 out of 6 roos.

 

I appreciate that you will be attached to them but I think you need to start distancing yourself from them now. I take it there was no guarantee  when you bought them, even though you were told they were pullets?

So do I.

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!

With all the Australorps comb and wattle growth/redness at just 5 weeks makes me lean towards roo for them
