    What do you think? 7-9 weeks old. I'm just worried because her comb and wattles are larger than any of my other chicks. [​IMG]

    My black Australorp is about the same age as yours 7-8 weeks old, quite a bit smaller, and has no visible comb forming yet whatsoever. I can try and get a pic for your tonight to compare. I'm not an expert, but I'd guess a roo.

    Ever since I got mine I had a feeling it was a cockerel... just because it was a lot bigger than the others!
