    Hi all! I have two blue australorp chicks that are 14 weeks old and I have no idea if they are boys or girls, can anyone help? They were not too interested in being photo'ed today, though my light sussex wanted in on the action...

    At 14 weeks, I'm going to say both are definitely roosters. Hens usually won't get that red and well developed until at least 20 weeks.

    I'm thinking roosters.

    I believe they are all cockerels, based off the size of their combs.
