  5. High Roost Ranch

    Black Australorp on the black chick is my guess. Which I believe is what they mean by BA.

    If that's what they are, I have some of the BAs that are VERY black. There is the possibility that these are all mixed breeds to some degree or another too. What are the BAs temperaments like?

    gryeyes Covered in Pet Hair & Feathers

    I love my BA. She's very talkative, and she comes to me for attention (not just treats). She'll walk with me in the yard, telling me all about her day. Plus, she's just really pretty.

    My BA's are trouble makers LOL! They start fights with the other girls then walk away and watch the show.

    Both my BA's started off pretty light in color and didnt turn all black until 10-12weeks of age.

    Quote:I have noticed that myself, the older birds are almost all BAs and Silver Spangled Hamburgs (guessing that what those are) and it's like the Jets and the Sharks from West Side Story! I can just see them circling and snapping fingers, dance steps, then a knife fight! [​IMG] LOL!
