Shouldn't I be able to see sex differences in my Black Australorps by now? I got what I thought was a 'straight run' of 24 from Ideal via my feed store but so far not a cock-a-doodle-doo or any discernable male traits from a single one of 'em!

I think you would know by 11 weeks, but you can always post a picture of them. Everybody here likes pictures

I like pictures

I have a Black Australorp, She's perty, and She protects my white Leghorn from big bad things, like pigeons, my dog (whose smaller than her) and me when I bring treats. Silly hyperactive pullets

She's definately a she.. not a comb in sight.

This is my girl at 12 weeks. The flash has bleached the colour out of the photo, but you can see the size of the comb

No, but I only built a coop big enough for 12 birds thinking we'd eat the roosters at 14 weeks or so, after some atrition during the 'raising' process - there wasn't any
..........One handsome roo like yours wouldn't have hurt though!

I don't know, but I think you could have some boys! Some of them have a longer looking tail than the others. And maybe a droop to the tail as well? It was hard to see completely with the tall grasses.
