    I purchased two week old Australorp pullets and am wondering if anyone would like to attempt to confirm that they are indeed pullets? Thank you

    They are way to young to tell, especially for an australorp that develops slowly, at around a month is when you can really first start to see signs if Its male

    It is too young to tell. Watch for any rapidly reddening combs or very large combs.
