Hi, I am new here. My neighbor-friend and I started keeping chickens this year. So far we have 2 d'Uccles (Clarabelle and Louella) and a Polish Frizzle bantam mix (Shelby). I live in TN, but my mom lives in Ohio and works with a Doctor who has over 200 show chickens and is giving them away. I am going up there next week to get some for us and for some neighbors (our county just passed the chicken ordinance in January). My mom has been asking what breeds he has, and so far she has told me he has silkies and "Jack-o-bins". My mom is not up on chicken knowledge, obviously, so I am sure the spelling is mutilated, but do any of you know of any breeds with a name that sounds similar to that? I can't find anything remotely similar. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
