    Hi All

    This is a 17 week old black Australorp that we are thinking is a girl but seems very similar to our boy. No crowing as yet. Would love your opinion.

    Thank you kindly! [​IMG][/IMG]

    I have to say, I think it's a cockerel because of his/her tail feathers. Sorry. [​IMG]

    Looks lovely a pullet.

    Though my Australorp cross rooster was very slow growing and didn't look like a rooster/crow till 25-30 weeks.
