    I have a hen and a roo that I bought from a friend when they were about 6 or 7 weeks old. The two black ones look like either black Orpington or australorp. In the sun they have the green hue to their feathers. I have attached pics in hopes of getting some input on their breed. I am hoping they are one of the two breeds mentioned, so that my son will be able to show them this fall for FFA.

    I'm not an expert but your picture looks just like my Black Australorp and the body doesn't look as fluffy and round as my Orpington.
