    Also looks like the more common Black Australorp and Jersey Giant.

    I am thinking Australorp. I have one that is about 12 weeks old. Beautiful bird. Very friendly and protective, but bossy. She wants to be large and in charge, but the BO is having none of that.

    That's exactly how my silver sussex chicks looked. It could also be a Jersey Giant? Maybe Australorp? My australorp chicks had a lot more white on their face, etc than that. But I'm sure they vary.
