    Could you post a side profile, or a photo showing the face? Also, how old is it? I'm thinking pullet, but can't be sure.

    From the back end, it looks like a Black Australorp pullet, but I definitely need a side profile pic to be sure.

    At only 9 weeks it's definitely a cockerel. Could be an Aussie, could be a mixed breed.

    Seeing the profile and knowing the age, it appears to be a Black Australorp cockerel. A better picture makes all the difference in the world.
