    Looking like pullets at this time, however looking to be a mix breed due to the coloring.

    That makes sense, although I was not aware of "blue" Australorp. I'm "green" on breeds but LOVE the color "blue". Enjoy your girls.

    The one in the second pic turned into a roo the other blue one looks to be a rooster as well and now the black one is leaning that way as well.

    I:he:barnie They're about 15wks now, right? I know Australorp pullets/hens have single combs & wattles, I'd wait until the crow or egg came to be sure. What makes you certain the 2nd on's a Cockerel? They are pretty...

    I was referring to the second one in my first post. It started crowing last week.
