    I have an 11 week old autralorp with well developed comb and waddles bigger than any of my other birds (he/she is the baby)> I wanted to post pics, but what do you know I left them @ home...I was wondering if any of you have any pics of your birds @ 11 weeks and left me know if they are girl or boys so I can compare....I will post pics once I get home, but I'm going to a swap tomorrow and I wanted to have an idea of it's sex ASAP...thanks in advance...



    Here is my boy....11 weeks....am I correct saying boy?

    they are "well developed" at 11 weeks, then it is likely a boy.

    X2 Afraid so. My Australorp hen is laying and has very small comb and waddles. At that age, had almost nothing.

    My 2 Black Australorps at 6 weeks old. HE crowed at 9 weeks! Had to rehome him and Sophie is now 13 months old.

    So sorry to hear that! I was hoping for the longest time that A was just advanced for her age. [​IMG] No boys allowed in our neighborhood.

    I was not happy to find out that Apolonia (my mom wanted a chicken named after her) became Apollo.They were 2 of my very 1st 4 chicks.
