    Hi,

    I would like to see pics of everybody's blue Australorp Roo's. I am a bit confused with mine... It is only 9/10 weeks old but all the Australorp Roo's I've seen are black on top and Blue underneath. Mine has no Black showing whatsoever.... The pullet has a darker head than it... anybody have a clue what it will look like when its older

    I know the photo's blurry sorry but hopefully u can still see

    @CB and CG
    I noticed you breed Australorps and in WA as well! Do you have any pics?

    Land down under
    Just let him grow out and see how he turns out. Some chicks are a bit off coloured etc and grow out of it, if not then look for better bloodlines.

    I was talking to the guy i got him off and he said they do change as they get older and they get more colour on their back! Thanks for the advice
