Thanks for your input, Birdrain92
I'm hoping you are right on 4 pullets....
Oh and I forgot to make clear - I am in Australia (dunno if that would make any difference to the tail shape?)
We just got some fertile eggs which were guaranteed pure black Australorps, and hatched them in a bator for the girls to watch in their school holidays....never once did I imagine it would be ME that fell head over heels with them!!
So hoping their guarantee is correct.
They hatched on 27&28th September 2015
They eat grower pellets, free range - oh and eat my vege garden
It's raining ATM but will try to get some better pictures later.
