Black australorp 5.5 weeks old gender?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 




Anyone have an opinions?
post #2 of 4

We had to wait until our Austros were about 3 months old to figure out the guys from the girls.  By then you could see the spurs on the feet and the combs were certainly much larger then the girls.  Nice birds too.  Great disposition, friendly, and ooooohhh so tasty!   The hens we kept are doing great on egg-laying too.

Pic #2 shows strong red waddles. And I do see a bit of red in that comb. I would suspect that he is a roo.

To young to say for sure but I'm leaning towards cockerel.
