    [​IMG]Australorp at 15 1/2 wks


    These two are the same age. The Australorp is larger than the other 3 that we have and has the red comb/wattles. Neither crows.

    ? breed at 15 1/2 weeks - is this a cockerel or a pullet?? It is the only one of it's kind that we have so no comparison...

    Alright-so here is our devil chicken, Pippin. He/she keeps on "crowing' which I believe to be an awkward squak. She is actually very mean. What breed / gender? If you have a good estimate and need more pictures please contact me!
    Also I have closeups of another chicken. This Australorp is what we think to be a Rooster. Please give some feedback![​IMG]

    1st pics look like a cockerel as for the 2nd without an age and body shot its hard to tell but the hackles look long and slender which would mean a cockerel to

    The Australorp looks like a roo (pointed hackle and saddle feathers), and the grey one looks like a roo (pointed hackle feathers). Can't tell on the last picture of the black one, definitely need a body shot [​IMG]

    I think the first one is a female and the second one I am guessing a male but it is hard to tell (is it molting?) The last BA looks like a male but it is hard to tell by just the face.

  8. Both look like roosters to me. They have the pointed hackle feathers and the black one has pointed saddle feathers.
