    they dont look pure to me and i would guess that the mix would have to have something that has silver lacing in it

    Black Aussies are pure black with a beetle green sheen.........those are definitely not pure Australorps! The body shape looks wrong too. I'm not sure what they are crossed with, but they do look interesting. [​IMG]

    Definitely not australorps. They might be a australorp crossed with something silver laced, perhaps wyandottes?

    They're either mutts or Sex-Links (except the rooster)

    Quote:That's what I was wondering, is there a sex-link mix that would make that coloring? It's interesting, the kinda lacing on the breast.
    And yes, the bird in the front of the last pic is a roo, just in case you didn't know.
