    Ok so I have this 3 week old Black Australorp that has been sexed and should be a girl. But I went to go see her and She or maybe He is growing these little wattles. Is that nomal or do roosters only have it? I wish I could put a picture of Her or Him but I don't know how and my dad isn't home to show me how. Thanks for your help.

    I have a picture of my Australorp roosters, see if it looks like mine.

    ALL of these chickens are roosters, they are about 5 weeks old...
    (these are from last year)


    Here is another....3 weeks old, I have more if you would like to see more.

    Thanks I'll try to post a pic. Mine do look like that, but I can't be 100 percent sure. [​IMG] I guess there is still hope. Thanks for your pic. and you have very Beautiful birds.
