This black hen has the red comb.

This black hen has a small black comb.

This is the rooster.
They were all suppose to be black giants. All of them have black legs but their head look different. And the roo has a longer tail then I expected. What are these guys??

First one looks like an Australorp? It "could" be a Jersey, but I'm thinking no... The second looks young, not sure the breed. The only black comb I have seen is on a Silkie?
The bottom one sure looks like a Sumatra?? Does it have grey/black legs??

do you know how old the first two are? are you sure the first is a girl? I am just asking because I can't see the feathers real well...
