    when it was chick season at feed stores in March, i bought 4 chicks: 2 from the barred rock group and 2 from a "Rainbow" group (meaning they didnt know what breed they where but that they did lay eggs) one of which did turn out to be another barred rock, but one did not. i am thinking she is an australorp. am i right or wrong?

    *Note: her feathers have a greenish tent to them, she is about 6-7 months, and she IS a pullet cuz she is laying.*

    **also, what ever breed she is, is she a good example of it? i am hoping to show her next year in 4h (i didnt this year because she was crazyish but now she is very calm)**

    any opinions would be GREAT.

    Yes she's an Australorp. I'm not an expert in what a judge would look for in them, but she has a nice full body, which is something the breed requires.
