    I am trying to find the name of a black chicken, would appreciate anyone's help. My Uncle made a tape of his life, and back in 1915 in Riverside, Calif., he states his family bought a flock of prized black chickens. It is hard to make out the name--Garbadon?? Harbadon? If anyone has any idea, I'd appreciate the name! thanks, Kathy

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    Hmmm, I'm not quite sure what the breed was. Hopefully, somebody will come along and help you out! I don't know much about older, less common chicken breeds.

    Hope someone has a clue for you. It possible the breed no longer exists or the name has changed over the years. Black australorp maybe, Cochin....
    Good luck and welcome to BYC

    Grueldrelands maybe?? that could be close-- my Uncle was in his 80's when he made the tape, so it's kind of hard to understand him. Thanks so much!

    I think that may be it! Listened again, and it's sounding similar. Waiting for pictures from my cousin, when I get them, I'll post their prize chicken with the silver cup :) Thanks so much!!
