    We picked up 6 chicks 7 weeks ago at the tractor supply from the barred rock pullet bin...... only they are not barred rocks... we suspect Astralorps, because they are black and there was an astralorp pullet bin also, but it was empty. We suspect this one is also not a pullet either.... anyone have any thoughts?

    I think your right on track. Very likely Australorps and that middle one is likely a cockerel. With that much comb at 7 weeks.

    I agree, looks like an BA cockerel

    sorry but Black Australorps are a very good breed, maybe someone would buy roos.
