    Looks like a Black Australorp. Nice hens.

    If the bottom of her feet are yellow, I am thinking Jersey Giant (hatchery JGs look basically like BAs from my experience at least at the POL).
    If the bottom of her feet are pink, I am thinking Black Australorp.

    I agree with 21 hens!

    She's probably a Black Australorp.

    Unless she has obvious yellow on the bottoms of her feet (in which case she's a Black Jersey Giant), she's a Black Australorp. BAs are excellent layers. You should get loads of eggs from her. :eek:)
