    Hi,
    I have 3 19-wk old Black Australorp chickens, and one has a much more developed comb and wattle than the other 2. I am wondering whether she is really a he? There hasn't been any crowing, but the difference among them has me wondering.

    Here are a few pictures of them. You'll be able to tell the hen I'm wondering about....

    Looks like a hen that is just about ready to lay.

    Looks like a pullet that has just matured a little quicker than your other girls. I have to tell you; those are some beautiful birds!!!

    Take care of them!
