    This Australorp again was in my original post asking about genders. Again not completely answered. This one took about 2 months to feather out and is still growing out its tail. It also has huge shanks compared to the others of its breed in my flock. The reason for me asking is because we are hoping that we are going to have 2 males for 2 breeding pens for 4-H. Worst comes to worst is that my sister can only take a Market pen.
