    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me exactly what breed these are. I'm about to meet a lady about bringing one home and she's also unsure of the breed. The woman I'm thinking about getting my roo from said she bought four birds from TSC as Black Australorps but they certainly don't look like those.

    Thank you. They resemble an Australorp but not a full one.

    Thanks for all your help. Even though the roosters pictures are mixed, I think I'll still get one. They're pretty, whatever they are lol.

    I agree they're very pretty. To me, that's the main reason to keep a rooster. costs just as much to feed a pretty bird as an ugly one [​IMG]. As long as he's respectful to me and good with the ladies, that is.
