    I don't know what kind of chicken this is. She is mostly black and has some orange feathers on her chest, a small single comb, orange eyes, lays medium brown eggs. Looks similar to this:

    Looks quite similar to some birds I hatched which were black Australorp roo x buff Orpington or Buff Sussex hen.

    looks like a black sex link hen, almost certain, or second generation black sex link, this is not a pure bred hen, F1 hybrid sex link,or F2 hybrid not pure bred probably shouldn't breed if you don't want mutts.
