    I've got this australorp chick hatched 13th June 2016 and was wondering if anyone could tell if it was a male or female yet?

    I'd say you've got a little cockerel on your hands.

    Comb, mostly. Pullet should have a teeny little pale yellow comb at this age.

    Yep cockerel. My Aussie pullet did not even start getting red until after 20 wks or so. Now she has a real small red comb.
