    i was just wondering where you got them because different places order fro different hatcheries and that could down size the number of breeds we can choose from.

    I don't think that is an Austrolorp... I have almost 30 austrolorps and have hatched out half of them and none of them looked like that at that age. Looks more like a black sexlink, Domonique, or a barred rock!

    Haha I only had mine a few days and the one I call peguin actually runs out of that cage to me when I open the door she loves being held. But cocky only comes near if I tap my finger making a knocking noise on the ground. Then he teases like he is going to let me hold him then flaps off but loves to perch on my fingers.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] I don't know her breed but I noticed tonight that she has 5 toes three in front and two off the side on both feet and before you say she needs her feet cleaned those are little feathers I have no clue what her breed is. But just thought the 5 toes was a bit odd. Do I need to worry or is this common with her breed? Oh and she has putty but which I been taking care of when I got her she had no fluff on her hind end and no tail now she is growing feathers no more bald tush and her tail is comming in. Her baby pick is above

    I see fluffy cheeks, pinkish/white skin, 5 toes, and feathered legs. Looks like you have a Salmon Faverolle. And judging by the coloring on those feathers coming in, it's a pullet for sure.
