    I'd say pullet. Tail feathers aren't sickled and at this age, normally waddles and combes tend to be larger. I'm not experienced with the Australorp breed myself but from what I know with my own, my best guess would be pullet.

    Good! I truly believe it to be a pullet but here is a picture of the differences between a pullet and rooster of this breed so you can look for yourself as she continues to mature.

    The bird in question is an Australorp MIX, so it would not look like a purebred bird. I think it is a pullet.
