They came with the eggs I bought to hatch. They are not like the rest. Thanks.
That feather colour and type look like it could be a Sumatra or a cross thereof.
I'm guessing EE based on beard and combs. Sumatras have super long tails.
Black sumatra's are one of the original jungle fowl and the black variety has blueish legs just like the picture.
That Roo seems to be growing a fair sized tail and he is only young.
Ameraucanas also have these traits, but have beards.
Sumatras do not have muffs and beards, and the boy has splotches, so he is not pure Ameraucana.
I have one who looks just like this. Tiny, almost black comb. She is supposedly an Olive Egger, a cross between a Black Copper Marans and a Wheaten Ameraucana. The birds I got in this batch, though, didn't really turn out to be the ones they said they should be, so I'm not positive. I'm waiting to see what color egg she lays.
Anyway, that makes her an Easter Egger, a mixed breed from an Ameraucana.
Is yours laying yet?
they are ees I have sumatras and crosses, they aint right for a cross, most black birds have a sheen to them
I think they call it beetle sheen. Here is a naked neck female with the same type of sheen. It is very obvious on black birds, which is what I love about the colour! Here is a purebred bantam black Ameraucana
