    Searched around, but can't seems to figure out what breed they are, seller didn't even say. As you can see their bellies have some white. Legs are black.

    There are a number of breeds that have black chicks that look like those, but based on availability, I'm guessing they're either Black Australorps or female Black Sex Links.

    Looks like black australorps to me. Could be black sexlinks but if I remember correctly my sexlink chicks were black with a little bit of butter colored fuzz.

    My guess is that they are Black Sex-Links, though they could definitely be Australorps.

    I feel like an Australorp chick would have more white on the face and chest area. They *could* be 'Lorps, but my spidy senses say Black SL or something else.

    That's what I'm thinking too. Most of the Black Australorps I've seen have more white than these birds.
