    I'm fairly certain this one's a Black Australorp.

    The question is: pullet or rooster? (This one's about 8 weeks old.)

    Thanks in advance!

    I 'm about to feel like a total moron. I sold a "for sure" rooster and a pullet, since I didn't want to break up a pair. Looks like I should've waited... [​IMG]

    Is it totally obvious this is rooster? I won't be offended, I have no idea... hence the post. How can you tell, so I know in the future?

    As I siad I am a newbie, but from what I've read because of how bright red/pink the comb is and how large it is thats a way to tell.
