    Hi Everybody...total newbie here. I have a 6 week old Australorp "pullet" and I am just wondering if she isn't a roo. I really hope she's not because I already have a rooster I am trying to find a home for! First of all, I have two australorps and they are very different. The first one (Daisy) is very dainty, tail up and larger comb. The second one (Spirit) has always has a dinosaur type stance, bigger head and feet, tail points down, but hardly any comb. Daisy also has just started to have the greenish sheen to her feathers. Spirit does not have that. I am totally confused by these two! Anybody experienced with Australorp chicks?

    She looks more like a minorca than an australorp. She's got a white earlobe, and she's more fine-bodied than an australorp would be.

    those rounded ends on the feathers give me the notion of pullet more than a roo, because they normally have pointy feathers if I am not mistaken
