    Not pure Australorps, for sure! I'm seeing some partridge-like or brown feathers. However, they do have the Australorp eye, so maybe a mix? I cannot tell what shape the comb is. Is it a single? Rose? Pea? It doesn't look like in the picture a single...but it could be my eyes aren't picking up that detail. And -- sorry -- I suspect it's a boy.

    Assuming they are about the same age, the one on the left looks like a boy. The wattles and the comb are significantly more mature than the one on the right.

    Defiantly not pure Australorps ( That is the correct spelling [​IMG] ). Yes the one on the left is looking like a male at the moment.
