    I bought this girl as a pure australorp bantam. From what I've read an australorp has a single comb? Hers seems to be a pea comb or rose comb. What are your thoughts? Sorry for the crappy picture the girls are new to me so are a little afraid to come too close atm..

    Yes pink between her toes is right.. Hmmm what could she be!? A cross of some description? I've got a feeling I got ripped off! Sick chickens that aren't pure breeds. Never mind, I'll love them just the same!
