Help sexing australorp chicks - Page 2

post #11 of 19

I'd say one hen and three cockerels. The first two are definitely cockerels while only the one in the front in the last pic is the pullet.

Agreed. Pancake is your only pullet. :o(

Pancake is your only pullet, and Tyson looks like your only Australorp.

Really? What breed do they look like?

If the white, mottled feathers on the head and chest don't molt out, than Java or Ancona, depending on the earlobe color as they mature. If they do molt out, then Black Jersey Giant.

Australorps have white skin, and it's a dominant trait.

I would say they are Australorp. Mine lost their fuzzy whitish face feathers by 10 weeks or so, and their beaks also filled in to be all black; they looked the same at hatch as yours.


Curiosity is getting g me lol; there has to be a story behind the name, "Pancake"? big_smile.png

Haha. If it were up to me, their names would've been: pancake, waffles, sprinkles, and skeeter. But my 4 yo son took over naming the chicks. I was thinking breakfast smile.png
