    [​IMG][​IMG]Hi All.
    Hoping you can help me with a gender question for this young Australorp. I think he is a boy, I only have one other to compare to and they look very similar bodywise, but this one has a bigger comb and wattle.
    Thank you muchly!

    It's a cockerel. With those brown feathers in the neck area, it's not a pure Australorp either.
