    This is Goose, my daughter picked her out at TSC along with 5 ISA Brown (?). She (we are assuming and hoping) was in a bin marked Asian Black, but another TSC employee stated that they are marked wrong all the time.
    [​IMG] At less than 1 week

    [​IMG] At about 6 weeks. Starting to get a green sheen to the back feathers.

    Sorry Goose doesn't like to get her picture taken.

    Thanks.

    I would say Asian Black is as good a guess as any. Since they're not actually a breed, it's hard to say if it is or isn't [​IMG].

    Australorp could be another guess, they're the most common all black breed. What color are the bottoms of her feet? That's the best place to see true skin color, especially on a dark legged bird.

    Hello, i would say black australorp. My neighbor has a black australorp chicken. In the sunlight the neck feathers have a beautiful green sheen to them.

    Pink means white skin. I believe Aussies have white skin, but I'm not sure what color the Asian Blacks would have. Probably yellow, that's the most common.
