    This is the only one I can't figure out. What do you all think? He/she is about 14 weeks. Supposed to be a Black Australorp.

    Definitely a cockerel, with that comb and pointed saddle feathers.

    Thanks, I thought so. Its weird, the saddle feathets appear pointy but when I look closely they have a pointy center and rounded fine feathers around the pointy part. Its hard to explain.

    14 weeks is still at the younger end for sex feathers. Give it a month or so and he'll be in his pointy glory [​IMG]
