I would say roo, though they won't start crowing til much later.
. Yea the comb is looking pinkish ..
it's around 4 weeks.possibly a little more..I went to a breeder and go pick some out..
I went to a breeder and picked some out when they was 2 weeks old straight run..I have five black astrolorps and it looks like two and possibly three are male.the other two aren't showing a comb yet but one mybe a little but it's beak is all black and very SM comb black to..I feal two are hens maybe three..I hope..lol
I want one rooster but not sure if it's the austrolorp rooster I want.I have americuana,Easter eggers,wellsummer, cuckoo maran, and Barred Rock.I would like baby's to have colored eggs and dark brown.
If the comb and beak are black one one or a few, it is a possibility of it being black sumatras.... My black sumatra chick looked like an austrolorp chick.
Oh really..well I picked them out of a bunch in a brooder that were different breeds so it's possible I grabbed a different breed if they look a lot alike..I'll have to check but I think two with not much comb or none has all black beak but not sure if both had black comb but one deffinately did cause I could barely see the comb cause both wer black..I'll have to get in touch with that lady to and see if she had sum.I will try post a pic later of it..
OK... a picture will help

They kinda look like crows in a way... so I call her crow.
Let me see if I have her chick picture handy for comparison...
Here's one of her now...
Here we go...
That's the only one I can find at the moment. She sort of looks a little like an austrolorp. Don't know how close the coloring is, but I was convinced
