    She's the black one with white earlobs. She lays brown eggs, and doesn't have a sceen to her. I'm at a loss on what bread she is. Can anyone help me?[​IMG]

    She's probably a Black Australorp. Though Australorps are supposed to have deep red earlobes, many hatchery birds don't, instead having reddish-white earlobes like your hen.

    I do not think BA. I think black minorca. Not sure what color eggs they lay but that is not a BA.
