    You need a clear photo of the chicken for identification.

    No chain link fencing. Just the chicken. Head to toe. From the front and from the side.

    Sorry the pic is worse than I thought, He is black with white spots, and has long saddle(?) feathers I believe is what they are called. the ones before his tail on his back. These feathers are kind of yellowish colored

    Mrs. AK-Bird-Brain :

    What kind of comb? What color legs?

    I guess the comb would be double? It is short and very wide. Kegs I'm not sure of. I think yellow?​
     
  9. I was thinking Silver Spangled Hamburg...

    But again, hard to tell from the photo...
