    Impossible to say for sure yet, but Australorp is a good possibility.

    Are those pinkish toes? If so, then its probably an austrolorp. If yellow toes, then probably a black jersey giant.

    It does have yellow toes.
    Does it seem Male or Female?
    If it's female than it doesn't match up with what we were supposed to get.
