    First time chickenkeeper here. I bought a female chick Australorp; the cutest thing ever! I named her "Mora" but after 5-weeks, she started crowing. Mora is now 12-weeks and her crowing hasn't stop, in fact is getting tuned. Here are some photos of her, could anybody identify is Mora is a sexy pullet that likes to crow or an attractive cockerel? Please help! If Mora turns to be "Moro" I need to find him a good home right away. Thank you!

    At 12 weeks with that much red comb and wattle and crowing, you have a Moro on your hands - sorry.

    Mora is definitely a Black Australorp cockerel. Sorry.
