    Black jersey giants maybe? Just a guess, I don't know for sure.

    What color are the bottoms of their feet? If they are yellowish I would say Giants, if the are pinkish-white I would say Australorps.

    got the eggs of of ebay and they were listed as possible ...

    Buff Orpingtons - Black Jersey Giants - Brahmas - Rhode Island Reds - Barred Rock Sex Link - Araucana crossed with a R.I.R. and a Brahma

    They are mutts so trying to figure out what possible parent stock they are from.

    bottoms of feet are pink (with some black spots)

    They look almost identical to our baby black sex links. Two have little white spots on the chest, one has a white dot on the corner of her eye and another has a couple of white tipped feathers.

    BTW our black sex links have a pink toe, either fully or partially pink.

    HTH :)

    Quote:Beginning to think you may be right, they look exactly like the pics I have found of black sex-linked pullets (no white on their heads so hoping they are females...)
