Can anyone help me identify my chickens?

    My hubby brought home a couple new girls. They are all black, slimmer than my other girls and they have pea size combs. Their eggs are almost white and they don't lay eggs but one every few days. The top of their heads, behind their combs, looks like....well...woopie goldbergs hair, kinda fluffy. The one with the biggest fluff seems to pace back and forth, like she's wanting to get out all the time. Then she lays an egg and is a bit calmer for a while. They are not as friendly as my other girls and they are a bit noisier than the others. Today I did notice one white feather on one of the tails, but the rest of them are solid, shiny black. Oh, and their legs are black too, if that helps. Anyone have any idea?

    Ok, I did a search on here for the breeds of chickens I was asking about and I think they are Black Sumatra's. Once I figure out how to get my pics up, I will post them.
