OK So my friend and I went to TSC 3 weeks ago and got some black australorps. I got 6 of them and she got 3 of them. One of mine died that night so I am left with 5. Only heres the problem only 3 of them look like australorps. The other two (my friends too) Are very poorly feathered they are all the same age, and the feather patterns are completely different. So I decided that they are NOT black australorps, and if they are not then what are they? Please let me know. I would love to be able to call my friend and let her know what they are. Thanks! Chick 1 My friends has way more golden lacing to hers. Chick 2 Australorp They are clearly different chickens! I told the to TSC and they said "Nope we ordered Black Australorps" Well, I think he is wrong!
