    Hello and [​IMG]. Sorry, can't help you with a black-combed breed. Never saw such a thing! Post a picture on the "Breed" section and someone will know. Good luck! [​IMG]

    It could be a sumatra. There is a really rare(in the US, im not sure there are any) breed called a cemani. I would highly doubt it is one though.

    Sounds like a Sumatra to me too.
