Bantam Australorp?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Anyone ever see anything like this?  We just got this lil girl today and noticed how small she is!   She is about 2 pounds - very light for her breed.

 

Is she a bantam or just very small?  She is almost 4 months old.

Ha! I have never heard of a Bantam Black Australorp now that I think of it. She might not even be an Australorp at all. Australorps are all black except for the bright red combs. Their feet and shanks should be all black. Maybe she's a mixed breed? Very cute though. Is that a rosecomb or a single comb? The 2nd one looks like a rosecomb and the first one...I can't really tell.

My resources tell me there is such thing and are rare but I just can't find a picture. 

 

 

I'll keep looking.

I have a feeling she is because her last owner raised her from a chick and was almost positive she was a Australorp.    Its a single comb.

I know several Aussie bantam breeders out west that are raising them. Beautiful birds!
