Unknown Little Black Chicken

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by WilmingtonChick, May 31, 2016.

  1. I got this little all black chick at the feed store. Any ideas? She has a bit of a white stripe down her chest, but not many distinguishing features.

    She may be a black Australorp.

    The most common black bird is an Australorp, so the odds favor that breed. She'll lose the white as her adult feathers grow in.
