    I have 5 BRs plus this one UFO that the guy threw in for free. I think it's a she, but I know it's not a BR, ha ha! I had posted earlier when they were babies and people thought she might be a BA, but here's an updated pic:

    Thanks, everyone!

    I would say it looks like my black australorp but mine has a little spiky regular comb growing. Sorry, I don't know the technical name for it.

    Quote:The term for that is Single Comb. Black Australorps have single combs. Yours appears to have either a rose, pea, or walnut comb. I'm guessing rose comb. He probably threw it in for free because it is a cross. A cross between a BA and something else... That's all I can say.
