I am a 2 week old Australorp- do you think I am a rooster?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We have 5 Australorps and this one looks different.  It has no tail feathers to speak of and the other 4 have had them for quite a while.  This one also has a larger comb, but it's not really "red" but just curious... May still be too early to tell for sure, but if anyone would like to share their knowledge, please do.  


I tried to get good pics...

I'd say its a cockerel. Perdy big comb for that age. And in some of the heavy breeds, the cockerels are slower to feather out.

Yeah, that's what we were thinking...  Thank you for your input.  Luckily we have a place he can go live since we can't have Roosters, but I sure wanted to keep all of my chick-a-dees.
