Black australorp gender

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello! I am a new chicken momma and I need help sexing these two! I think I have one Roo and one hen but I'm completely unsure. The one with the redder comb and waddle I think is a cockerel.. Given the altercation with a neighborhood cat the other day! I can't be sure though. Any help is appreciated! If they are both cockerels.. Will they hurt eachother? I will have 10 hens besides these two. Thank you!big_smile.png

How old are they? The one with the darker comb/wattles is probably a cockerel. If they are both boys, they will not fight if they were raised together as babies.

8 weeks old! Wow! They're big big_smile.png They just looked like full grown hens to me wink.png But since they're 8 weeks, I am guessing roo from the last two pics.

I have a wonderful loving family, so that means my chickens get alot of love from us-well from me & my son mostly, but I like to pretend my husband loves it too! 1 collie dog,3 cats, 4 Leghorns, 1 OEGB rooster, 7-Gold Comets,2 Dekalb Amberlinks, 2 Buff Brahma's, 1 Light Brahma's, 4 Naked Necks, 2 Col. Rock Cross, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte hens, 2 Silikes, and more breeds on the way! .
