Rooster or Hen. Also wondering about our 4mth old Australorps gender
I am thinking Cockerel. My Australorp did not even start turning red until at least 24 wks.
I'm thinking cockerel as well, it first struck me as a cockerel anyhow. But there is no sign of saddle feathers. Which is odd for a bird of this age.
I'm going to guess Pullet. Not seeing any saddle feathers or hackle feathers.
Thanks guys for your help, we are just new to having chickens and this one and our polish chicken which are the same age have just started jumping up at eachother like they are fighting. Is this normal? Thats why I was wondering if they might be roosters
I don't know much about the Polish chickens, but that looks like another hen\pullet to me, not seeing the feather shape that most Roo's have.
A few of my hens play around by jumping at each other, just a way they try to show dominance. Depending on how long you have had them together they could be competing for top of the pecking order. Did you get the 2 chickens from the same flock? Or separately.
We bought them togther from the same brooder so they have been together their whole life.
Ah okay. The austalorp could be a Roo. Just haft to watch and see if he developed saddle feathers.
