I'm not 100% sure, but I think your australorp is probably a roo & maybe even the RIR (they're already getting wattles).

WLH & RIR at 7-8 weeks old - small combs - no wattles:


7-8 week old BR:


11 week old barnevelder - no wattles either

Its a pitty the pictures are not of the whole bird,
Males tend to have a faster feathering growth rate especially on the shackle and flight and tail feathers these all look like hens.

My RIR rooster had developed a comb and waddle before this age, and the hen confused me for a bit. But she has a small waddle you need to look fairly close to see. light pink in color as you have.


the small pinkish comb, makes me say HEN.

Same as the third bird. small comb and pink in color.
