    Any ideas on breed? I was thinking Black Astralorp but it has white wing tips? Bonus points if you can determine gender! P_20180316_184130_vHDR_Auto.jpg P_20180316_184120_vHDR_Auto.jpg P_20180316_184140_vHDR_Auto.jpg P_20180316_184123_vHDR_Auto.jpg

    Black australorps' first wing feathers do tend to be white, actually. But Australorps have black legs and your chick doesn't.

    So I'm gonna guess sexlink, even though most sexlink chicks have more black on them. Like australorps, they sometimes feather in with white wingtip feathers first.

    Black Austrolorp.
    Many of them have leg color like that. Especially hatchery type.

    For gender, post pics of the comb at six weeks.

    It's not a black sex link. It looks like an australorp to me. I've seen quite a few with those multicolored legs.

    Definitely an australorp! Looks exactly like mine at that age!
