    We've been fooled! We were under the impression we had three australorps and 3 silver laced wyandottes. Now we have two like this that don't resemble either of them. Their feather pattern seemed to change within days!

    thank you!

    Also, from searching I'm leaning towards Barred Rock. And feeling bad I only have one Austalorp. We tried to make sure they at least had a buddy within the same breed [​IMG]

    See, that's what we thought but they look so different from our other SLW. [​IMG]

    Some have white ear patches, others dont. And the white pattern is different.
