    These were given to me and the hen and rooster are the most beautiful blue black. She lays beautiful brown eggs. He is quite the friendly guy. Thanks[​IMG] [/img]

    Hope I did that right.

    Are you saying you have a hen and a rooster, both like the black bird pictured? I'd say Black Australorp, but it looks a little off. Maybe a mix.

    Black Australorp rooster....he should have pink on the bottom of his feet.
    Those others are Buff Orpingtons. [​IMG]

    Thank you! I will try to get a good pic of both of them. I was given three buffs and this one black hen. also two other roosters plus the black one.

    So now with the other chickens I have , I need to decide on the rooster situation. With my leghorn I have 4 now with about 30 hens.

    Thanks so much for the replys, this place is so full of good info and friendly people with that info.
