    Yes Zeely! I think that's what she was. I just Googled some pics of them. Now I feel like an idgit. I was looking at pics of my friend's regular Cornishes the other day & thought "hey, they kind of look like Frannie." Never thought of looking for pics of other colors. Thank you so much!

    Now, why did just the link come up & not the pic? I've posted pics before to the forum w/o a problem.

    Are you sure? Because her legs don't look thick enough for a Cornish. Could she be a Barnevelder?

    i don't think mcmurray carries barnevelders. she has a very cornish-y head and neck shape.

    Lothiriel, thanks for the link for the pics! I'm leaning towards dark Cornish. Her personality matches the Cornish more, except the "avoiding people" thing. She never avoided us. She wasn't nearly as heavily bodied as a Barnvelder. That pic of her is from when she was about 6 months old, her legs were thicker when she died. Plus as already said, I don't think McMurray carries them. I Googled pics of the Barnvelders, they're really close to her, but they're too heavy looking & in the pics I found their beaks all looked too short.

    Thank you again to everyone for your help!

    black sex link. your title "black chicken with gold lacing". It's a black sex link. I had one and she disappeared 2 weeks ago and never came back. No body. Sad. I want more. They are great birds. She was my first bird, but she was well-behaved, like the rest of the birds ;)

    I agree she looks like a dark cornish. I'm glad you found your bird! Hopefully if you order again, there will be another friendly one for you.

    My guess is Dark Cornish, nothing about it looks like a Gold Laced Wyandotte. Wrong body type
