I've got a couple of black chickens on order. Twice now, when I asked what breed they were, he told me "Deckal-B". In my searches on the net, all I could find was that Deckal was a company, of Asian origin. But none of those pages would say what their Deckal-B chickens are.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks.

No I can't. I don't have them yet, and they didn't have any pictures at the co-op. I guess I'll just wait until I get them and post pics. I just thought there might be someone who might already know about this Deckal-B stuff.

Thanks for responding.

My money is that "Deckal-B" is either a Quebecois or intentionally-amusing way of pronouncing "Dekalb", a big commercial poultry producer. They do apparently, sez google, produce black hybrid layers

I know sometimes hatcheries will make some sort of hybrid and give it a special name. Ideal has some type of leghorn breed they did this with. Just a guess?
