    I'm pretty sure its a Black Australop. If it is, then I think you are very lucky cuz they are very kind and love to lay eggs.

    I'm voting Barnyard Mix. She's got enough brown color coming through she's not pure Australorp, or any black breed.

    Ya, a mix would be likely. But it probably is at least 1/2 australop
