    A few months ago I was given a small black hen from a family friend. I thought she was a Dutch bantam, but now I'm not so sure. She lays white eggs but has red earlobes. Here are some pictures of her

    Dutchies have white earlobes and blue/slate legs, and that hen's tail set is too high for a Dutchie.

    Not OEGB, I believe black ones have slate legs. Hers don't look slate??
    Japanese is a good guess. Or a pet quality Serama.

    Yeah, what comb does she have? The one I posted is show-quality. ([​IMG] She won 2nd in something, I think best in her class or something, the man we got her from didn't say [​IMG])
