    I'm no expert but I am pretty sure australorps don't have that copper feathering, they are all black. They even have different color legs so not sure they are the same breed, how old are they? The one on top has a pretty large comb coming in.

    we have had them 3 weeks and the one on the top isn't shy [​IMG] He/she has bitten me a couple times as well as my 12yo son.... If I put my hand in the brooder box that one will come after it, not in a mean way or anything but certainly isn't a shy chick... Those 2 are the largest as well...

    I think they are black sex links. Not sure, but if they are they should both be pullets. Comb looks a lil big, but no wattles..

    Black sex-link pullets. Should be little laying machines!
