    this one stumps me!

    do you know the gender is my main question but if you know the breed can you tell me?

    Looks like a pullet. I don't know what breed. I don't think Ive seen a chicken all black before.

    Here are pictures of two of my australorps, the first is a cockeral, second is a pullet they were 12 weeks old in this pic.

    If yours is a australorp, someone told me to also look at the angle of the beak. Females were more long and slender, and the males more angular. Good luck [​IMG]

    I'm thinking definitely a pullet, and could be either an austrolorp or possibly a Jersey giant. I think I remember something about the colors of the bottoms of the feet being a determinating factor between the two? One has white, the other yellow, but right now I can't remember which is which [​IMG]

    White nails and white bottoms of the feet is the austrolorp.
