    I have 5 month old straight runs. They were supposed to be Australorps. This is my first flock. Ive got 4 birds. Two appear to be Australorp pullets. The other two look like this. Any idea? Roos of a different breed? No laying or crowing in the flock yet.

    That's a black sex link pullet. I think you wont' be disappointed with them, they're wonderful layers and nice backyard birds.
