    Just looking for opinions on some of my girls. I posted the BR at at 3.5 weeks and it was a resounding BOY response, which I agree. I've found him a good home but just want a final reaassurance [​IMG]. My Black Australop started showing some pink in her comb and wattles recently, so "just checking" and seeing what folks who know more than me think. Thanks!!

    Here are two photos of my BA:

    I would guess that the BA is a hen, the BR is definitely a cockerel.

    I can only speak for the BA as no experience with your other breeds.

    I am pretty sure you have a pullet...usually my BA boys will have pretty well developed and quite pink-red combs by 6.5 weeks....but there is always that exception. Yours however looks very lady-like [​IMG]
