    Lack of any color to the comb, no visible wattles, small feet, henny stance, henny head shape, henny body shape...

    Agree that's a pullet. Not as positive it's an Australorp, unless you live where blue is a common color for that breed.

    @hendo98, you asked QueenMisha how does she know if it's a pullet...well let me send you a picture of my three 11 week old australorps maybe that will help confirm Misha's answer:
