    What does the egg song sound like?

    She is a Black Australorp. They are black and when they get in the sun, their feathers have a pretty green tint to them. They also have black legs.

    I agree, Black Australorp...if the bottoms of her feet should be white rather that yellow. She will lay you lots of lovely brown eggs. I [​IMG] my BA`s , gentle and freindly birds...congrats.

    You have to check the bottom of their feet.

    If they are white she is an Australorp.

    If they are yellow she is a Black Jersey Giant.
