Inherited hen. Australorp?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is Sugar. We inherited her when we moved into our new house. The old owners had several chickens, but left her for some reason. She is sweet and docile, but can be pretty bossy if she's hungry.

I think she's an Australorp based on other pics I've seen on the interwebs. Am I correct? If not, what breed is she?

Could be an Australorp or a Jersey Giant. Check the feet - white soles means Australorp, yellow means Giant.
