    I bought some day-old chicks yesterday that were reportedly black australorp. The are solid black. All of the pictures that I have found on-line of black australorp chicks are black with white/cream/yellow markings. I'm thinking that these might be black sex-link instead. Any way to tell?

    hi
    I was asking the same question
    I bought black australorp eggs I know the breeder and his chickens and all of the chicks black no white the black sex link you will find that the male has white dote on the head like the barred rock.
    the female all black when they grow they will have some brown color
