    Maybe a black australop? As for gender, I think it is to early to tell. How old is he/she? Looks a little over a week old. [​IMG]

    It is too young to tell gender. As for breed, there are many black breeds/varieties that look similar as chicks, so you may not know until it is older. However, a good guess of breed would be Black Australorp, since they are the most common black breed.

    Where did the chick come from? Hatchery (which one) or breeder?
