    Hi,

    We got two Australorps from a farm and they were 10 weeks old and supposed to be pullets. Now about 12 weeks after (so 22 weeks) they are not laying yet but they are behaving a bit like roosters might. Any idea if we ended up with 2 roosters? They are very tame with the Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks (2 of each) and are bottom of the pecking order even though they are the largest of the flock.

    here are some images.

    thanks for all the help.

    They are both without a doubt cockerels. [​IMG]

    Yep. They look just like my Aussie cockerels of the same age.
