Yes Stormy. Did you see the updates photos I posted week 7-8. Originally I posted week 5-6.
I'll update photos again in another couple of weeks. Hopefully we know for sure by then as I will need to return the roo's as we can't keep them in our suburban backyard.
Let me see if I have some photos of mine…

I forgot to mention, she had a comb injurey, so most Australorps will have bigger combs. The young Tiny, she was probably the age of your first photos.

Stormy - Black Australorp - I’m still not sure some days I think hen other days

Ham - Blue Australorp - I’m thinking Roo as he’s getting a lot redder looking he’s also a week younger than the others.

Snow Ball - Light Sussex. So confused by this one. He/She is really big and has quite think legs but still lacking any head gear. Super friendly loves cuddles so hoping pullet but could it be late developing roo at 10 weeks?

Butter Cup- Buff Sussex - 100% Roo lol

Cotton - Light Sussex . Only one I’m sure is a Pullet. She’s smaller than my other light Sussex and he smaller legs.

Pepper - Lavender Sussex. I have no idea with this one. She seemed to grow little wattles early and a tiny bit of comb but it hasn’t grown for weeks and not really red on the comb.
