    Looks like a rooster to me!
     
  3. Tail feathers give it away. Definitely a male.

    Rooster. Hackle, saddle, tail and back feathers are what gives him away. Here is a Black Australorp pullet and a Black Australorp cockerel. Notice the differences based on the feathers.

    Both individual boys that I posted are separate. Not the same bird. So if those 2 are male, then I now have 3 males. Lord have mercy.
