    She could be a black sex link hen
    I have Black Australorps and their combs never flop over

    I agree she could be a black sex link just without the brown on the chest, but in my opinion she looks more like a black astralop.

    I've had her since she was 1 month. I didn't know sexlink hens didn't have to have the yellow/orange lacing? Think she could be a mix? I just thought she had the australorp face and she has the green sheen to her feathers (camera phone wouldn't quite capture it)

    She probably is most likely a black astralop. I have one that has a pretty big comb herself.

    I really don't think she is an australorp. I have a few and none of them look like that. Even my roos with huge combs didn't look like that.

    She appears to be a mixed breed.

    I think she is either a hatchery Australorp ( wonky comb) or a mixed Australorp - she does seem to have the aussie build.
