    We got 6chicks from TSC, the only info on the pen was "pullets" they have black feathers & a black stripe on the beak. I'm guessing Austrolorpe? I would have attached a pic, but after 3 tries, I gave up.

    I've noticed black TSC chicks tend to be Austrolorpes or Jersey Giants. Not much help, but the best I can do without a picture :)

    Just picked up my BA's this morning and that sounds a LOT like my chicks... any way you can post a photo for the more expert folks here to help you ID them?

    It is a bit hard to tell for sure. The legs should be gray with white feet. Yellow legs would be a Black Star. Pink feet should be a Jersey Giant.

    They look like Australorps.

    Congratulations!

    They definitely look like Australorps! Albeit a bit older than my flock :) Beautiful birds you have there!
