    I was thinking that too, but I'm not too familiar with the breed.

    Looks like a Dutch from a doctored picture from UK or Holland. Wish we had Black Dutch of this type in US. Actually have seen very few of best type in either UK or Holland,or Germany, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland--and not yet, in the U.S. If someone had a Black Dutch pulletthis nice, it would not be offered on Craig's List! Ours are developed from OEGB and after many years, cannot lose the OEGB type, even if some ear lobes are white. The rest of the body and plumage type is just not able to lose the long bred OEGB genes. We may have them "in time". Did you purchase this bird? Would like to see a real picture of her! Would be pretty nice!!
