    I was told it was a blue isbar, but some on the blue isbar forum told me probably not. The breeder I got it from also has svart hona and does not separate young chicks by breed. Also, do you think it is a rooster? Might be because I can see some teeny sicckle shaped feathers by tale and pointy feather on neck, plus big comb. Its about 6 weeks old now.[​IMG]

    I think you ended up with a svart hona. How the breeder confused it with an isbar, I am not sure :/

    Excellent choice, Pyxis. I agree that it is either a Svart Hona or an Ayam Cemani which is essentially an all-black chicken from Indonesia. The silver lining is - you might have a rare breed either way. Too bad for the error, though. Good luck!

    Yeah, I am fairly positive it is a Svart hona. He is getting as black as my black copper maran, although he was grey at first. ( At least I think it is a he, could be wrong)
