    I would just forget about it, chalk it up to experience, and find a reputable source of australorps next time around. It's possible these people were being dishonest and misrepresenting the birds they were selling, but it's also equally possible that someone else took them for a ride and they genuinely thought they had australorps and didn't have enough experience to know better. Besides, unless they were selling these hens as "breeding stock" you really don't have a leg to stand on with regards to complaints. They sold these birds as hens that were already laying and that's what you got. Calling them and complaining isn't going to get you anywhere. If they were being intentionally dishonest, it's not like they're going to give you your money back or suddenly become "honest" just because you said so anyway.
