This Black Australorp looks like a pullet to me.

This one is also a pullet. I don't think she is a purebred BA. She has orange eyes and hints of orange in her legs. Anyone know what she could be crossed with? Sorry the picture isn't great

Sorry for all posts. This is the other one. The suggestion is RIR - any further thoughts now that she a bit older. I think she is a pullet as well.

Yep the red one is a pullet and I would still say she is a Rhode Island Red. Lovely yellow legs, they tend to be quite a brown color until they grow up a bit. She has the green tips on some of her feathers also. So i'll stick with RIR.

The black one in question could be a RIR x Australorp. I have some of this cross and they look the same as your girl. They have yellow eyes and black feathers, they are not as plump as an Australorp though, more leggier and a bit more athletic. Lovely xbred girls all the same, and the bonus I found with mine is that they have never gone broody....huge bonus..

A nice group of birds you have got there.

I think you are right on all accounts. Interesting you say the cross is more athletic - she definitely a bit more adventurous and gets in and out more than the others. Glad they are less broody. I had my Japanese bantam along with 2 BA's go broody in the past week. They are in the broody buster now....
