    6 week old Black Austrolorp. Bought as a day old chick from Meyer hatchery along with a silver laced Wyandotte, salmon faverolle, Delaware, and speckled Sussex. All suppose to be pullets. This one seems to have a much larger comb than the rest. Never owned this breed before so I'm not sure if that's normal for a pullet of this age?

    With a comb that pink at 6 weeks, that's definitely a cockerel.

    Sexing is only 95% accurate, so you may have just gotten unlucky.
