    Looks like it might actually be a Black sex link. Australorps have more white on them as chicks.

    Both "australorps" have a white chest and white at the ends of wings..it's just the brown that throws me..could it possibly be a copper maran? Someone mentioned that?

    As these chicks are feathering out they have copper on their chest and a green sheen on their backs? Do you guys think they are still probably sex links?[​IMG]

    These came from an assorted pullet bin at Atwood's. I called and they said they had no idea what all they had at the time I bought these.

    Could be black sexlinks or could be Asian Blacks. Definitely not Australorps.

    That one looks like an Australorp.

    I don't have any pictures of my chicks yet but I was told they were Silver laced Wyandottes. They sure don't show it. They are sort of "penquin" looking.
    Have some streaks of white on face, white chests, and a few white wing feathers. They are 4 weeks old. No sign of silver laced.
    I'm thinking they are Australorps????? Got from TSC and they never have a clue what they are selling.
    I knew they weren't barred rocks, and they said they were SLW.
    What does an Australorp look like when chick? Any one have any pics please?
    Thank you.

    I just searched the internet and the Australorp chick pics look like mine. So I guess I answered my own question. I bet they are Australorp.
    DARN TSC you can't trust them at all. The chicks seem healthy enough and growing. I bought 6 and two promptly died but these 4 are doing OK. They were straight run.
    I'm not unhappy....I love Australorps, I just wanted the lacing.
