    I knew better but bought them anyway from a feed store. The lady said they screwed up the order & didn't know what breed they had sent. She said the 2 day olds looked exactly like her black austalorps as Chicks. I agree they looked exactly like all the pics I've seen of BAs but now that they are 1 month old they look more like SLW but I can't find pics of silver laced dotties at 1 month to compare.

    They do look like SLW but, poor quality, just what i think. Maybe they will look better as they age.

    I thought they looked a lot like my couple of 3 month old dotties. But wow they sure looked like the BA Chicks for the first week. Had me fooled! Now I remember why I don't buy from feed stores.
    Now back to looking for astralorps.
    Thanks all
