This little monsters are 8 -9 weeks old .... I am wondering what I have here . Thank you !
the one in front is probably a cockerel, the other one i can see the head of looks like a pullet. breed is probably black australorp or jersey giant - but they could be something else.
Are they Black Australorps? From the comb size I would say rooster for the chick in front, the rest are pullets, though I'm not sure about the one with the blurry head.
leaning more towards black giants, australorps normally have white bellies and some white in the feathers until they become adults.
Could you get individual pictures of each?
sorry yes these are black Australorps
ok, now i must ask where you got them. im impressed that they are all black already.
Most Black Australorp chicks by the age of 9 weeks should mostly have black feathers.
One of my hens decided to become a mom ... my rooster is a big boy and they make pretty babies.. I was shocked how well they developed ... all under Mama hen ... they still have a few white wing feathers...my attavar shows Mom with one of these teenagers as babies
im working on the quality of mine, but they typically show white until the final molt before they lay. not alot after a couple of months, but it does show. mine aren't show quality though, they are from the "record holding egg laying line" that could be the difference?
