    I bought four "pullet" Australorp chicks 12 weeks ago from TSC. They, like my Australorp hens, all have slightly different combs. About two weeks ago, one of my little ones started with a lot of redness in the comb. His comb still is only a little, if any, larger than his "sisters." I really didn't suspect she was a he until I saw the red, but now I'd bet a lot on it.

    Kahula's a pullet, Narvi's a rooster, and Denali and Catori could go either way... Only time can tell.
