    I had asked ID of some of my friends chickens a while back.
    Three of the four are EEs but this one really doesn't look like one.

    Although the legs look kinda green in the pic, they are actually more black.
    All the other chickens the same age have there beard and cheek feathers already so I'm assuming she's not an EE.
    Thanks!

    It looks like a Black Australorp to me too, BUT I can't tell if she has a pea comb or a single comb. If it's a pea comb, she could still be an Easter Egger as there is no "standard" for them. If single, then I'd say Australorp.

    Yes. She has a single comb.
    aiwetir, I compared chickens and she looks very similar.
    I would still like a few more answers to make sure it is an Australorp .
