    I have been searching all over and cant come to an answer as to what breed one of my hens is. She is small, black, white ears, and long tail feathers. All these point to a Black Rose comb or Minora... but the only thing is, none of these have the feathers on their head like she does. There are three predominate feathers that come from the back of her comb and stick up. Hints why we call her "showgirl." can anyone help me figure it out. (She is the black hen at the top left of the picture.)[​IMG]

    I would guess Minorca. A close up would help!

    From the looks of your flock I'd guess she's a mixed breed.

    She looks like a mixed breed.
