    Are there brown and white australorps? This spring we got some chicks, among them 2 australorps. One black, and one was a light brown. Everytime I look something up on them the pictures are always black. The black one looks right. The brown is very different. She has some white with rounded brown ends, like our laced wyandotte but different colors and a different build/shape. I'll take a picture tonight or in the morning, she's very pretty, friendly, curious. Just wondering if there even are brown australorps.

    there's blue and black australorps which would also mean there are splash australorps and i think those are the only colors
