I am 95% sure that we have two black Australorps. I say 95% because my wife swears they were labeled as Jersey Giants when she bought them as chicks. I've watched them grow and I took the time to read about both breeds. From what I can tell they are more like Austrolorps. I love the black color with the green sheen. They haven't gotten any bigger than the other chickens either so that also steers me away from the Jersey Giant label. It doesn't really matter what breed they are to me. I like them either way.

looks like a black Astralorp to me, too. Take a close look at the comb and compare it to a Jersey Giant.
