    I need help confirming whether this is a rooster or a hen. I'm going to need to find a new home for it if it is a rooster, since I live in town. Unfortunately, they do not allow roosters within our city limits. Any input would be helpful! I have 3 Australorpes that I got at 1 day old, and this one has been bigger, friendlier, and has a bigger/redder comb/wattle than the other 2. It's tail feathers are starting to look like a rooster's now, too. I'm pretty certain it's a boy, but I would like some reassurance before adopting him out. 1.jpg
