    I got 4 chicks off of the internet they said they were all pullets but now one Black Australorp is bigger than the others, has a darker comb, bigger tail, and bigger legs plus feet. I dont want a rooster! And can australorps be feather sexed?

    Sounds like a rooster by your description, but a pic would help.

    heh not what I wanted to hear, that means a 1 hour drive to return him! I think I will hang onto him for another two weeks but he sure does have a dark comb!

    I don't think its a roo...2 of my 4 Black Australorps have very clearly bigger, redder combs than my other 2...1 of them happens to be ginormous and he happens to have an equally ginormous comb and the other roo is smaller like the gals, but redder in the comb...I think the comb and wattles are the give away, not their size. That one doesn't look like my cockerals....
    Hope you have a girl. Wait and see?
