    I am slowly learning how to tell the differences of the breeds...now that they are pushing 3 weeks it is easier.... I have like 6 barred rocks, a few black australorps and I have one chick..that looks like it "may" be an australorp but it never had the same yellow speckled face, nor any spots on the head at all and it doesn't have the same white coming in on a wing feather. The australorp is still real yellow in the chest, the other is much more white and grey. Am I wrong here? Thoughts?




    chick legs no yellow white on head - ever

    Could be black jersey giant, although I am by far no expert. Very pretty chick.

    no. 5 and 6 look like the silver lace wyanndottes I just hatched
    not sure but I named one funny face because of the white and black
    around the eyes

    Everyone told me they were Australorps when I put them up here a few weeks ago. I would love to have a SLW, but I sold some of those chicks as Australorps becuase that is what they looked like and what I was told! [​IMG]

    But there is a huge difference between the top chick and the bottom, no? Hopefully someone will really be able to tell me! [​IMG]

    Hmmm. The first chick looks a lot like my BCM chicks, minus the feathering on the legs. Maybe because it has clean legs it got put in with the wrong birds?
    Really new to this though so I am probably all wrong.

    Very cute! Almost like penguins! They don't look like any of mine so I can't say what they could be. Mine are Barred Rocks, Americaunas, and Black Stars so it's NOT those! [​IMG]

    They look like Australorps to me,the white in the wings will go away.
