    This is one of the "designer" chicks I hatched from Julie's eggs.... I do believe that it is DEFINITELY an Australorp mix [​IMG] BUT.... is it a pullet or a roo??? I SOOO hope it is a pullet as the kids love it and it is one of the friendliest, sweetest chickens we have [​IMG] It's a tiny bit over 3 weeks old.

    Hmm, it's a bit early to call, but those legs seem pretty thick for a pullet. Maybe that's because of the extreme close-up that they look like that. I hope.

    Quote:Hard to say . ITS still to early to tell . HECK our gang of babies are 12 weeks old and some still LOOK like ROOS when they are NOT , wait until they are 3 months old .

    IF you LOOK at the 2nd. picture again as I did , IT ALREADY is starting with a COMB , and thats early for a chick that age . MUST BE A ROO ..... PRECIOUS THO

    I agree on it being a bit early but the comb is developing and the legs are pretty thick. Could be a roo...

    I'm gonna guess roo....just going by this.....my black austraulorp who is 8 weeks has thin tiny legs, also hardly any comb at all. Also I have noticed my roos at the early stages have the scruffy/missing poor feathering and no tail feathers...where the girls by like two weeks seem to spurt out this tiny puff of tail feathers. sorry.....I know just how you feel..... [​IMG] I seemed to be blessed with too many roos this time around myself... [​IMG]
