Okay, does anyone have any knowledge here on the differences between the two? Is it true that Sumatra have black skin and black bones, even? If so, I'm in the clear because mine has white/pinkish skin.

The reason I'm so dire about it, is the difference in egg laying. Sumatras are poor layers; 1/week

I've got an Australorp. Checked for spur markings (none), and she fits the pictures of Australorps more than Sumatras. Thanks for the info...gets confusing when you're new. But it was important to me for the egg-laying number; plus I'm getting another Australorp from the same guy this week. Didn't want to end up with two, poor-laying Sumatras!
