    I brought home 2 chicks from a big box store. There both supposed to be Plymouth Barred chicks. But the one on the right is all black with black legs and beak!!?? I think she must be some other breed. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

    We noticed our box store had 3 labels on their bins despite that we often didn't notice the other labels until we looked and go that's not what that says it is.

    Your Rock look like it *might* be male. :hmm White stripes wider than the black ones?

    The other... maybe an Australorp?

    How long have you had them? Do you know their hatch date?

    very curious. .. could be a natural variation, a magical, mystical black pullet, or a coal miner mug?

    I have had them just over two weeks and they were 5 days old when i got them. So about three weeks. I was also wondering about her possibly being an Austrolope (sp?) but i never had that breed.

    Maybe a BSL or an Australorp

    Another option with the black one is Black Jersey Giant. What color are the bottoms of its feet?

    The one on the left is a BR. The one on the right looks like an Austrolorp.
