    At nearly 6 weeks there is a distinct difference in my austalorp chick's combs - obviously cockerel or pullet.. This one however is still deciding, it's comb is taller and redder than the other girls but shorter and paler than the cocks.. Any ideas?

    A side shot would help so we can see the legs, but at a month and a half old it could go either way.

    I'm guessing pullet for now.

    Looks like a pullet to me, but it is still too young to tell for sure.
