    This little guy came as "stuffing" in a box of hatchery broiler chicks that arrived 2 weeks ago. There were 6 other stuffing chicks, which we have tentatively ID'd as barred rocks...I have one aussie from TSC that I raised from about 3 days old...this one looks an awful lot like her...any thoughts? They are not visible in the pic, but his/her shanks are jet black.

    Looks like it could be an Australorp, but you should take more pics in a few weeks to make sure...
    Hope that helps!

    Not likely to be an expensive breed like a Marans. He was just stuffing after all.
    Does look like a nice Australorp Roo to me, I LOVE my aussie roo and cant wait to get some chicks out of him :)
