    I have posted the same darned question all over the place. I have a GORGEOUS hen that resembles a black sex link OR a black maran. However, she has a mop top. What breed is this??? No pics unfortunately.

    Nobody has answered because you don't have pics.

    Its almost impossible to discern the breed by description alone.

    Did you buy her as an adult or raise her from a chick. Neither a black copper marans nor a black sex link has a "mop hat". Sounds like a mixed breed hen,possibly with polish in her genetic makeup.

    Sounds like a golden polish cross, but without a pic, you cannot get a definitive answer.
