    The black one does look like an Australorp. Has a pretty large comb though...unless its a rooster.

    Here is our other possible Australorp (dark black one) . Different comb than the other.

    She looks exactly like my Australorp hen. Im pretty sure that is what she is.

    Im thinking that the first one is a rooster and the second one is a hen. That's why the combs are different.

    Hmm, never even considered she may be a he. Doesn't act like our other roosters, but that doesn't mean anything. Would better pics help?

    Yeah, some close up picks would help. Does he/she have any spurs growing? Maybe it is a she but it just has a really large comb?

    Check under there feet and see what color it is. If it's white then it's a Australorp, if it's yellow its not a BA and might be a Jersey Giant.
