    It's hard to tell from that picture, but the comb is so small I'd say hen...

    Hope so! New to chickens, so I'm not sure. This one has always been a little bigger than the other australorp. Doesn't seem bossy tho, kind of a middle of the pack chicken.

    It's always hard to tell when they're so young. I hope it's a girl!
    Personally, I like boys too though. They're so pretty!

    I'd love to have a rooster -- they are so beautiful, but I live in town and am limited to 6 hens and no rooster. I guess time will tell.
