    Help identify Barbara. Her body is black and shines iridescent green. Her head and neck is reddish brown. Legs are slate black. Crown is tiny and pink. She is about 35 weeks old and I don't think she lays yet. Thanks in advance your help is appreciated!

    She looks just like my Goldie, whom I was told at purchase, is a Black Australorpe. But I'm sure the breed smarty-pants folks here will be able to verify or correct me. [​IMG]

    Looks like a copper maran to me. Can you tell us anything else about her? Where she came from. Might help.

    I thought Black Australorpe too but are some known have the red heads?

    On second thought, I think she's a black sex link.

    Not a BA(at least not a full BA).
    She is probably some kind of cross-maybe a game cross?
    Can't tell how big she is by looking at pic-is she standard size?

    Quote:I bought Barbara from a friend (locally) that breads and hatches, or he purchases barn yard mixes, which I think this bird came from. I purchased 4 hens that day all relatively the same age group. 1 barred rock, 1 black australorpe, 1 delaware (maybe a deleware(shown in photo as Skyler) and Barbara. The barred rock and black australorpe started laying about a week ago.

    Quote:She is smallest in the group. I think smaller than average.
