    Hi all,
    My sweet Australorp hen has hatched 2 chicks 4 months ago and 1 chick one month ago. She is a great mommy but I am struggling to know what gender all 3 are. I thought the 2 older ones were female up until today when i noticed they were getting long tale feathers! Then I assumed the young one is a male too because of his comb becoming red and prominent sooner than the older chicks! I'm so confused:( Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all[​IMG]
