    I have one Australorp it is about 8/9 inches tall now, here is two pics of it... can anyone tell me the sex of it? or too early to tell.? It seems to have a very small comb compared to the other chickens, but it is growing the fastest.

    Thanks in advance.

    By the size of that comb I would say that's a roo.

    That is definitely a cockerel. Well developed comb, little red wattles coming in already and prominent spur buds all say cock-a-doodle-roo.
