Does any one have pictures of their chicks that look similar and please tell me what breed?



White is now gone. Now they are about 4-5 weeks old

These chicks have a white flash on the wing tip a whitish under belly and no tail they also seem slow to feather. Any ideas what they are?
This is Flora She is about two weeks old I think

Does anybody else have any ideas on these chicks. I think I remember the feed store clerk saying the breed name started with an "A".

Australorps are solid black when fully grown, I doubt they'd have brown in their wings even as chicks.

ETA Were they sold as pullets, or unsexed?
