    Alice was sold to me at 4 weeks old as a Black Australorp.
    She is now 21 weeks. I know she's a mix due to the pea comb, but i'm curious as to what mix? She is about 1-2lb lighter than my production red of the same age, and i have 10 week old buff orps catching up to her size. Her face is black, and her entire leg/foot is black. Black toenails too. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]i dont even have a good idea of what her mix could be-the guy had rhode island reds, barred rocks, cochins, marans, blue andalusians, buff orps, and one duckwing colored roo in a pen together. Had at least three purebreed roos i saw.

    My first guess would be that she has some Sumatra in her (this would account for the pea comb and blackish purple skin color).

    Probably a Sumatra mix, due to the black legs, face, and plumage.
