    I have three 17 week old Australorps, an one has developed a much more pronounced comb and wattle than the other two. It doesn't have any other features of a rooster (saddle feathers of crowing). Is it an early developing female or do I have a rooster?

    Yup, just a pullet close to laying age. No males here.

    X3 on pullet. BAs are excellent layers of large, brown eggs. You should get lots of them from that girl. :eek:)
