    How do you tell the difference between back australorp at 12weeks? Does anyone have any pictures of the difference. None are crowing, at least yet.

    Thanks,

    Hello, see my earlier post with pics and see if that helps. They are of my australorps at 5 weeks of age. Hope it helps you! The one with the bigger, red comb is a roo-roo! You should definitely be able to tell if you have a roo by 12 weeks of age! Mine isn't crowing yet!

    Neither has a comb that big so I am going to guess pullet for now.

    Thanks,
