    I just was wondering if anyone has any pics of 3 to 5 week australorp chicks. I am curious to see what they look like when they are little.

    Here are some of my australorps in their (very) ugly duckling stage. They were right around 4 weeks in these picture.

    Springchicken -
    Sex of those birds, please? I've got 3 Australorps - one I'm pretty sure is a roo - pink comb bigger than the others at 4 weeks and change. Actually "his" comb is similar to your birds. I new to this and have nothing to compare him to other than the other birds we got - a couple of barred rocks and EEs.

    These were all packing peanuts, so they're all boys. You probably do have a little roo on your hands.

    I have a pile of 5-6 week old black aussies. They are the ugliest chickens that I have ever seen. Although they are beautiful when they grow up. I had a lady that wanted a few but when she saw them she changed her mind until I showed her adult birds.

    They are so mild tempered and loving chickens. Wonderful breed. I just sexed mine tonight.

    I had never heard of them until I bought a few and now everyone that sees my birds wants chicks.

    Mine will be 5 weeks in the next couple days. My wife went down stairs to look at them the other days and says to me "Ugh, why did you choose this breed again?" [​IMG] Evidently, she thought they were ugly too. After I explained to her that they are supposed to be proficient brown egg layers that are winter hardy, curious, and not flighty she seemed to calm down a touch. [​IMG]

    To of my Australorps have a single white tail feather though, I wondered what that was all about but I'm figuring it's something that will change as they age.
