    i bought her thinking she was BA but I've never raised an Austrolorp that looked like this before.

    Some black varieties do have a few white feathers as chicks and juveniles. They should disappear after the first molt.

    Quote:Look at the feet.
    If it was a Black Jersey Giant the bottoms of the feet will be Yellow.
    From what I can see in the picture there is a lot of Pink showing on the feet it is possible that it is a Australorp.

    How old is he/she/it (I don't want to commit to gender)? My BA had a lot, A LOT, of white on her head, and chest. Of course, she's hatchery stock, and we all know they're inferior [​IMG]
