    They're black.........they're smaller than standard chickens.........they lay well...........they are calm birds...they come in about 5 colors........and the most common color is a golden color.
    I got a trio of them from the President of the club named after this breed.

    O.K. O.K. O.K. Now since some of you have had a chance to guess and wiggle a little and squirm and sweat and hyperventilate and etc. etc.
    The answer is.................................................................Black Orpington Bantams !

    They are so beautiful and the roo was so calm while being handled as were the hens.
    (Now life is getting back to the way it was meant to be, Orps in MY backyard!)
