    I have 2 more birds to show you. Looks to me they are of the same breed. The tip of the last feathers are white tipped as seen in the photo. Also can you tell a gender yet? They are 4 weeks old.

    What were they sold to you as? They look like Black Australorps to me. They sometimes have white feathers like that until they molt out.

    All solid black breeds start out with some amount of white on them, it will feather out. [​IMG]
