    This is my 6 week old Australorp mix. I know it's feet are HUGE.... but it doesn't seem to be rooish at all in any other way. Are Australorps slow developing????

    At this point it looks like a pullet to me. I'm not sure of the slow to develop, I have some that are a mix also and I could tell roos from pullets at about that age my roos have big combs and good wattles.
    My mix is American Game x black Australorp. They are black with silver hackle and saddle feathers and some gold mixed in. I think they are so beautiful. my pullet has the silver hackles.
