    These two are about 4 months old. No crowing.

    Need a better photo. At 4 months old, both males and females can have red combs. We need to see the feathering on the back, near the base of the tail. That's where the male saddle feathers would be.

    Africa - near the equator
    If photo 3 shows the bird in photo 2 in the forefront, then id suggest they are both cockerels as i can see saddle feathers. I think you are correct with your pullet observation.

    ill try to get some better pictures of them tomorrow. When their out and about. Might be better to tell.
    They still make tiny like chirping noises. No crows yet.

    you can clearly see my Cockerel in #1 with his back to the camera. He hasn't even crowed yet.

    And one more quick question. Are these in fact Black Australorps?
