    The australorp will be black without feathers on the legs or toes. Should have a single comb with black eyes.

    Black Langshans are a tall black bird with lightly feathered legs. They lay a brown egg and have a single comb.

    All black birds have greenish sheen. Even the black parts of other colors (partridge, penciling) can have sheen. Pics will help a lot. There is NO way of telling what your bird is without pictures.
