    I can't find anything in this chick my wife thought it looked cool and picked up two. They are mostly black with a red beak and light black feet[​IMG]

    Someone else on here posted a chick that was said to be that same breed. I believe the general consensus is that it is a recent mixed breed that is not yet recognized officially as a breed. Very little information on them.
    If you google it you get all kinds of ways to cook black skinned chickens.
    Here is a link to that thread if you are interested.

    Yea I googled them and found the same thing the farm said that they will have blackish green iridescent head with a black body and black feet. They did not tell me what kind of eggs they will lay or how many. If anyone has a full grown one please let me know

    Brown eggs. I think I read 200-250 eggs/year. They seem to be a new thing this year, so you probably won't be able to find a picture of an adult easily.

    Looks a lot like a Black Sex-Link. I'm not familiar with the Asian Black cross/breed.
