    I bought these at Tractor Supply. I was told they where Black Australopres, But someone just told me that they are not but rather Barred Rock. Can someone please help me with this.

    Thank you. I'm sure I will like them just the same but I was sure wanting to get some Black Australopres. Maybe next time.

    I agree; they do seem to be Barred Plymouth Rocks. Barred Plymouth Rocks are also nice birds.
