    Hi everyone. I got this hen as a freebie. The only information I got was "it's on of those black chickens people go crazy about". She's about 9 weeks old. Any idea of what breed she is? 20190612_195347.jpg 20190612_195324.jpg

    I am in no way an expert, but she looks just like my Black Jersey Giants.

    my phone camera doesn't do colors well. They are shades of greenish yellow. 20190613_072039.jpg

    Greenish yellow foot bottoms mean she's a black jersey giant. They're great birds, but not one of those that 'people are going crazy over'.
