    Here are some pics, the with feathers on the chests indicate to me that it is not an austrolorp at least not black ones, but what kind is it? There are 4 different pictures of 4 birds. Two are probably roos, and the other 2 pullets, please help! [​IMG][​IMG]

    NOT pure bred Australorps.

    likely mixes.

    I imagine they can.

    Hatchery chicks are only as good as the eggs they get from their breeders.

    While some Australorps will have a little white as chicks, they shouldn't have any feathers come in white.
