    Greetings from Kansas, Jeffreyrare, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our community! Here's a thread that discusses that breed - perhaps some owners of the them can point you in the right direction: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/806031/the-svart-hona-swedish-black-hen-thread
    And find the SC thread in this link to talk with fellow SC poultry folks: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Finally, perhaps posting in the Breeders and Hatcheries Forum will yield some results: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16/chicken-breeders-hatcheries
    Good luck and thanks for joining BYC!

    G’Day from down under Jeffreyrare [​IMG] Welcome!

    redsoxs has given you some links to some great starting points, so I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
