    I ordered Charley, as a started pullet about 5 weeks ago. At the time I believed I was ordering a Black Australorp. Today, I noticed Charley's comb was partially black, so I posted her pic on a Facebook poultry group page I belong to, hoping to get info on her comb. Well, to make a long story short, I was told she's NOT a Black Australorp. I've posted Charley's pics here hoping to get a confirmation on what type of hen she really is. Charley is between 20-27 weeks old today. Any thoughts?

    My guess would be Black Sumatra pullet.

    Not a Sumatra expert, but that would be my guess.

    Not a BA - Australorps have a completely black eye with no discerning colour.

    I'm also thinking Sumatra. Not only the black skin but the body shape--the long, lean look plus all that tail behind her.
