    I have a 6 week old australorp that I’m thinking might be a rooster. Im so bad at determining though! What do you guys think??

    I'm not seeing anything that says rooster but they're quite young yet. It's much easier as they age.

    Yeah they’re still young. I have two though the same age. And this guy has a much longer tail feather. His feathers are different and he’s larger. Quite a personality already too. Feisty.

    It could easily be months before sexing through sickle feathers is possible. Feisty might mean something. But again, too young to say for sure. Some hens just have ants in their pants.
