Is this a Black Australorp or a Black Jersey Giant? Or am I totally off base?
My bet is black Australorp...
agree-looks like an australorp to me-I have 5.
My bet is a low quality Australorp, it shouldn't have those white feathers. I'm saying Aussie because of the legs and feet. We have one, she's the sweetest girl, though very bossy and noisy.
I've read that Black Jersey Giants often start out with those white feathers (the reason for adding the picture) and that they lose them when they molt for the first time. That's why I'm confused because I had originally thought Australorp too. Oh and they probably are poor quality because they're just hatchery birds.
Do black Jersey Giants get the green shine too???
My friend told me they were blue... Then again, he's not very trustworthy as he has barred rocks instead of black birds.
BTW- your bird looks just like my Dora and Luci.
The pictures I've seen of Jersey Giants the sheen is green as well.
