    Black Australorp - Henrietta is 9 weeks old. I got her from My Pet chicken with five other pullets. She is suppose to be a girl. Any suggestions?

    Not really any different from my other pullets. I was scared she was a roo cause of the large comb and wattles and all the posts I read about the wattles on roos. Well here's me crossing my fingers.[​IMG]

    Well I'm thinking she is a he. He is almost ten weeks and to me it looks like he's trying to crow in the morning. I guess that would be a tell tale sign, right?[​IMG]
