Not as sold- all black pullet

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have two 8 week old black pullets with black feet. They have not become Barred Rocs as expected.  what birds would be all black with black feet at this age? I will try to post pics later. It came from Ideal Hatchery.

I believe solid black with solid black feet is the Black Australorp.

That was one of my suspects. These are my first birds, australorps were one of the types I was interested in getting.

They sound like Black Australorps, but a picture could definitely help confirm it.

The only bird that would look close to a Black Australorp is a Jersey Giant. Black Australorps are great layers and in my opinion one of the best breeds and they are my favorite breed. I have 25 of them. 24 pullets and one cockerel.

What color is the bottom of her/his feet?   That can tell the difference between australorp and Jersey Giant

They might be black sexlinks.

They're probably Black Australorps or Sex-links.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
