    I have a one week old black chick from the "assortment" bin at TSC, it's all black, legs, comb, beak, feet and very dark skin as well. Would anyone have an idea of the breed, I'll post a photo ASAP!

    Also could be a Black Sumatra, BSL, or something else. There's such a variety of black chickens :love

    Sounds like a black silkie to me. How many toes?

    It's also much smaller than all of the other chicks we have in the brooder, but it's the wildest!

    4 toes, no feathers on legs, just a small all black chick! Also it's comb is very defined but small, it's so difficult to get a good photo of it!

    Also not sure if comb is black now, it's like the black is peeling or flaking off? The tips are beginning to become pale yellow but vaguely
