    Maybe some of you experts can give me an idea on one of my babies. I ordered 6 BA chicks mid February ish..putting them about 3-4wks old. One just doesn't look like the rest! Much darker, hardly any white and a little bigger too! I put a picture below side by side with another chick. The chick on the right is what the rest of the BAs look like.. the girl on the left is so much darker in her face, chest and legs and has ZERO white in her beak like the others. Is she and australorp?![​IMG]

    She looks like a BA to me, just darker in coloring (at this point in her development, anyway). [​IMG]
