    Well, I'm definitely no expert, and 3 wks is still pretty young. But I do happen to have both 5 wk old Buff orps and blk australorps. I say blk australorp is a roo and the BO is a pullet [​IMG]

    Darn! I will have to contact the family I bought them from and see if they would be willing to switch with a pullet. =\\

    Do you guys think the BA is a roo because of the comb and wattles are already coming in only at 3 weeks? And its already pink?
