    Hey chicken lovers,

    I have five australorps---two from one farm and three from another. Two of them are very black, black legs and black beady eyes, but the other three have brown eyes, lots of brindle feathers arond the necks and lighter colored legs. Question: Are they all pure As or do I have a mix.
    This is my first time with this breed.. Nice chicks---just curious.

    Mimi, I think you have some Black Sex-links along with the Aussies.

    . . . just a guess.

    My Australorps were a little "variable" in 'o8 but not to the extent you describe.
