    I have read every post I can find on sexing Australorps. Oodles of them! I am an over-excited mama chicken person and just can't wait 3 more days to ask the rest of chicken mama's.
    My two babies in these pictures are the same age, but they look so different. Both are sweet but Dixie just bloomed out her 1st week at home and Nikki is still rather fluffy and tailless.
    Anyone venture to say at 19 days if they think they are girls or boys? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Waaaaaaay to early to tell for sure, but at this early in age combs, especially big and red combs, probably mean rooster.

    Thank you! These are my first baby chicken chicks. I am surprised at the difference between just the Australorps. I hope they are both hens....
