So my daughter wanted a chicken. Well, mom wanted chickens, and got daughter excited about it! So now she's deeply attached to her "Mindy" who upon looking at her tail feathers may be a Mork. Uh-oh. We can't have a rooster, so she'll be devastated. I want to know if I should be preparing her to give up her beloved Mindy. Background: The chickens are black australorps. About 9 weeks old. The chicken in question does not have 'spurs'. Obviously hasn't crowed (or I'd have my answer, right?) Please examine and give me your input!! This is the chicken in question. The comb isn't overly large like I've seen on some early roo pics around here. You can see the sorta long tail feathers in this picture. No "saddle" feathers that I can tell. But what do I know? I'm not sure if that tail is just sort of an "in between" filling out phase that I'm seeing or a rooster tail in the making. This chicken has always been a wee bit smaller than the other. I feel like I've messed around with the funky cold medina. Is it a cockerel or a pullet? PLEASE BE A PULLET MINDY PLEASE BE A PULLET!
