    I got a batch of chicks today from a hatchery in Ohio, and this one was supposed to be a black australorp. She has a straight comb, different color legs and the wrong coloring from the others. Any ideas on breed? [​IMG][​IMG]

    We got australorps, black copper marans, barred rocks, barnvelders, and speckled sussex, so I know it is not one of those. Anyone have a guess?

    This is a really old post but just came across it - if you're still out there my guess is ancona! Would love to know what it grew into.
