    Hi, I don't have a picture but when I was young I had an awesome hen. She was huge, I mean, as far as I am concerned. She was big enough that we used two hands to hold her and she could barely fit through the door on the hen house.She was black, but would glisten blues and greens in the sun. She had large white on her face and a beautiful red comb. Any ideas would be appreciated! [​IMG]

    Could she have been a White Faced Black Spanish?
