    Hi there! We went to a wonderful auction on Thursday and I am the proud new mommy to 5 baby chicks. 2 of them are black and look exactually the same. Tops of them are black and their undersides and tips of wings are yellow. And they have black legs if that helps.

    I'm guessing here, but it looks just like the jersey giant chick I ordered for a fellow BYC'er.

    Looks like my BR's when they were little but so did the 2 of the Black Stars. [​IMG]

    Dont see a white spot on the heads, so they cant be Barred Rocks. Jersey Giant or Australorp would be my guess.
