    Here is what I believe to be my black Austalorp at 10 1/2 wks old. Is this the correct breed and is it a pullet?? Sorry this is the best I can get. She is the shy one of my trio.

    Check the bottom of her feet, if they are pink she's an Australorp, yellow jersey giant.

    Do you think it's a she though? I'll check the feet tonight. A neighbor ordered about 25 from a hatchery and when they came it we had a hard time telling the breeds apart [​IMG]Which is why I say what I think to be an Australorp.

    It's a girl. A rooster at that age would have a big red comb. I'm pretty sure she's Australorp from her looks, but double check feet color, to be sure.
