    This is my newely aquired pullet/roo (were not quite sure yet) Its been suggested that its either a Black Australorp or Black Sex Link, i was told it was 9wks but im guessing its abit older then my other 2 pullets(last pic) or its a roo (supposed to be pullet)

    IF it's a pullet then it's a black sex link. The comb looks a little big for a 9 week pullet. If not- I'd say it's a black copper marans (not french standard) or a mix. I hatched some welsummer cross roos that were very similar. Hope it ends up a girl for you!

    He's not a Australorp or Sex Link. Sex Link roos have different coloring than the hens. That is what makes them sex links. Australorps are solid black with golden colored eyes. I personally think he is a mix. Possibly of a RIR and a Black Australorp or Giant.
