    Those are not Wyandottes. They are Black Australorps.

    Dang! I was hoping for at least one Rooster! Oh well I know a lady locally who has a RIR rooster she offered me awhile back, will have to check back with her and see if the offer still stands. and thanks for your input!

    How old are they? You might want to hold your horses for just a little longer and see just what you have. [​IMG]

    Quote:I have a Black Australorp and she is wonderful. She lays big brown eggs and is so sweet. Her name is Betty and even though she started out quite homely, she has become quite a beauty... don't you think?
