    So I got two Australorp "pullets" on April 2nd although they looked like they were already about a week and a half old. So they are about 8.5 weeks old now. I'm somewhat concerned that my beautiful Morticia may actually be a Gomez.... here's some pictures of "Morticia" and Wednesday let me know what you think. If you would like some full body shots I will try to get some this evening. Thank you in advance for your input. IMG_0238.JPG

    Although a bit young I will vote pullet.
    My males have always shown more comb and wattle than that by 6 weeks.

    I agree. I thought all my BA pullets were roosters two years ago & they had bigger combs than that & they turned out to be all pullets.

    I am trying to figure out if I have australorps or black sexlinks! Would the combs be red by 8 weeks if australorps?

    that one looks like a pullet, yours might be crowing if it was a cockerel.
