    We are first time chicken owners, so all of this is very new. On April 5th we got two Black Australorps that were three days old, not straight run. Last Sunday one started laying eggs, so we she is a hen. However this one has a very different looking comb and waddles that are smaller, not as red...... Since they are six months old I am hoping we can determine the sex soon and that maybe experienced eyes from this forum could weigh in.

    Thank you in advance. [​IMG][/IMG]
