Hi all, Long time 'lurker' first time poster here. A while back we bought some day old chicks as a fox took out our old hens. They were black in colour with grey legs and grey eyes and we were told their breed at the time, but it was a breed we haven't ever heard of and subsequently forgot! Anyway, skip forward a few months and our chicks are grown! I've been trying to figure out what breed they are and the best I can come up with (and at the time thought they could be) barnevelders. they don't have all of the traits so I guess they are some kind of hybrid but the cockerel is beautiful all the same. Here is Norman, we were after hens but you get what you get with chicks and he is beautiful all the same. Thanks for any help, Harry.
