Thanks...I'd like to have 1 roo but don't have enough hens for anymore than that. Will keep fingers crossed. The Australorp was only straight one I bought, rest are supposed to be pullets, but we all know how that goes

Yep! As a person who has done feather sexing at the feedstore for selling people those "pullets" I know that its really only a 80% chance, and sometimes we can't even tell! Its harder to tell on younger chicks but also hard to tell on older chicks! Gotta hit that good spot!

Since I only have 1 neighbor and the property is surrounded by landscaping company I don't have to worry about a noisy roo, just don't want any fighting

Please post your photos at "what  breed or gender is this,"  and do mention age at time of photos.
I posted in breed n gender but they were busy discussing a poor little chick and incubation difficulty, so figured what the heck, I'd give starting one a try, sorry. They are around 5 weeks.

Thanx..Just trying to get second opinion...They're supposed to be pullets but one is straight run. Can't seem to get a verdict on em.
