    My two australorps are both supposed to be hens but to me one lookers like a rooster it's has been making a crow sound and is protecting the others that are hens I also have noticed that it already has it's comb and wattles while the other does not,please tell me your opinion and I will send some pictures.

    We will need pictures to be able to tell you. Some dominant hens do crow but it's much more likely that you have a cockerel.
