    Hi, was just wonder if someone could confirm whether they think my 5 week old Australorp is a girl?

    I bought her from a fodder store (who were selling them as sexed females), but over the last week I've been looking at that comb, thinking that It was getting big compared to what I've seen online. Now it's got me second guessing whether she is indeed a she, thoughts anyone?

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome to BYC!

    I think she is indeed a she. All my 5 week old Aussies had combs about that size at this age. As long as the combs aren't bright red. Males tend to grow big ol combs fast and they redden very early! I think she is a she. Very cute! :)

    I think hen also. My adult Australorps have large combs.
