    Can anybody tell what breeed my chicken is?? She has a black comb and legs. I have never seen another chicken with a black comb. I got her 2 years ago and she was already full grown, so she could be older. She is a great layer, laying everyday or every other day.

    Here are some pics of her......

    Silkies have black legs and combs. I have 2 we hatched that do not have the silkie feathers. I assume they are a silkie cross. Could be a possibility.

    Sorry I can't help you, but she is a beautiful hen. I hope someone with greater knowledge may have an answer for you.

    LOL that is a very interesting chicken! Very adorable! It's a keeper. I just got silkies and it's so strange seeing their black combs.
