Hey all, see the pics below. Is the Austrolorp a male or female? Age is 21 weeks. It is supposed to be a female, but I'm not sure it is. Haven't seen it crow, but it is pretty aggressive with the flock and chases the hens (and the roosters) sometimes.

The Australop is a rooster that much is clear but he’ll take a while to grow a larger comb and longer tail feathers. Honestly though the only hen in the picture is the one on the top right. The other ones also look like young roosters.

Its the one on the top right. I know you meant right - the one on the top left is obvious male.

@whitenack your Australorp is a male!

And appears only one female in your pic (top right), although the two chickens near the Australorp are a little harder to see their feathering clearly in the pics.
Yah my mistake I meant right.

Correct. The two Orpingtons in the foreground and the broiler in the back are roosters. The Orpington in the background is a hen.
