    Thoughts regarding gender on my approximately 3 month old chicken? I think it's and Australop. He/she has brown speckling down his chest and is developing a nice green tint to his black feathers.

    If he has brown speckling on his chest - it could be a black sex-link. Google (or look on here) Black Australorps and Black Sex-links and compare them. My "australorps" turned out to be sexlinks.

    Based on the sec linked theory which I am thinking is probably correct, does this make my whit chook with tiny red speckling through his body a male?

    I think the white one could be a red sex link cockerel. Did he come with the red birds?
