Okay, so I got a couple black chicks from TSC last week. The girl at the store had no clue.....thought they were sexlink? Maybe? No idea...

Someone else mentioned Australorp chicks at TSC.

These are big vigorous chicks. They are friendlier than the others (although still seem to think I will EAT THEM when I go visit) and much more curious. As evidenced by putting my cellphone/camera down in the brooder.

What the heck are they?

4 days later....









Their toes are pink but their legs are dark. They are so cute! I went back a few days later and if it was not for the 6 chick minimum, would have bought the 2 black ones left. They are supposedly pullets.

I can live with Australorps! They are already running and flapping their little wing stubs. Way more vigorous than the other 4. Much more friendly, no poopy butt problems. Way pushier
and curious about what is going on.

I think they are adorable! I had not planned on getting any australorps, but you know....cute live baby chicks in the bin, how could I resist?
