    Ok, I was told that I had got Australorps and if I read correctly they are also called Black Orpingtons? Is that correct?
    The Australorp / Black Orpington has a Red Comb. In this pic I have three black chickens with red combs and two black chickens with Black combs.
    Any clue as to what the black chicken with black combs are?

    What color are the bottoms of their feet. My Jersey Giants have black combs. They are hatchery quality, so I didn't think anything of it. Their feet are yellow.

    thank you. nice to know they can have both black or red combs.

    I checked the bottom of their feet anyway.. They all have a creamy color on the bottom of their feet. Some more than others.
