    Production Blacks were developed by Ideal Poultry in the early 1960's. They are a combination of several breeds but are basically a black, silver barred plumage bird, which has a plumage color pattern similar to Barred Plymouth Rocks. This breed is the most efficient white egg producer of the breeds and varieties that are not primarily white. They breed true; however, they have not been recognized as a pure breed by the American Standard of Perfection.

    Their mature weight is 4 1/2 lbs.

    I hatched out a Columbian Rock Cuckoo Maran that looked just like that little guy there. Turned out to be a rooster, sadly.
