    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".

    well then they are probably austrolorps, but the look like they have some brown on the wings, which does not make sense

    Yes there is some brown on the wing tips. They seem mild mannered not shy. They have black legs.

    I take it Astralops don't have any brown on them?

    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?
