    I am going to wander a guess with Australorp...and I would say pullet...only because I just raised 5 roos of the same breed.

    Thank you for the reply. Sid Taylor and Thai are varieties of game fowl. These are two different chickens. They are not Black Austrolops.

    I hope you are right about the pullet guess though. : )

    Looks like two pullets. Considering their comb type/coloration it is difficult to determine their gender by those standards, but their body type says female. With the thinner proportionate body, thin graceful legs, and a straight tail. My game boys tend to have more of a curved tail by then.

    At eight weeks, I'd guess pullets.
