Quote:I have a 11 week old australorp that still has a tiny black comb, and I have no clue what that means. It has also always been the smallest.
My other 11 week old australorp already has a comb.

Hi, and


As a new member, you need to have a minimum number of posts to be able to add pictures to your thread. Since chickens have different comb types, depending on breed, it's not unusual for a chick to have little or no visible comb. Wattles normally don't appear for a while, either.

If they're 7 weeks old, no comb or wattles would indicate female. Those with big red combs and wattles are boys almost every time.
