    Hi, I have two 4 week old Austrolorp chicks. Neither one has discernible waddles or pink combs, but one stands with the tail up and one with the tail down. Is this typical for two pullets? Or does the different stance suggest one is a rooster? These are my first chicks ever...[​IMG][/IMG]

    too young. Stance isn't everything - if a female alerts to something, she could have the same stance. Bolder chicks also stand like that, while timid ones don't. Would you please post new photos at 8 weeks and also front view, so we can see extent of comb (if any)
