    Here is one of the hens we got last yr from Atwoods. I can't figure out what she is.....What do you think?? Her name is Turkey Legs because as a chick she looked like a baby turkey with long legs. The kids named her ha ha...

    Maybe it's my eyes.....(?)......But what color is she? Is she Black?....The photos make her look very dark red to me.... It could be a combo of my eyes and the lighting on my computer....[​IMG]....It just doesn't look black:/

    No she's actually very pretty iridescent black, looks green and blue in certain light. Pretty much a textbook Sumatra now that I know what it is...I actually appreciate her a lot more now LOL!
