    With white earlobes, Black Andalusian first vote, Black Minorca next, leggs look dark for a Black Leghorn.

    Where did you get her? I would say Black Andalusian as well. Black Minorcas are generally more angular and more of a rectangle shape.

    She came from a heritage group that had te other chickens I posted along with some white leghorns I think.. I tried to google the difference between the two and the thing that makes me lean towards Minorca is that her feathers all look like an oil slick quite green.. And her comb had like a minimum of six points...

    I'm leaning toward Mincora, she looks a little stocky for an Andy. but something for perspective, or her weight could clear it up. Andalusian hens from a hatchery will run around 4-5lbs, Mincoras should be 6-7ish.

    I'm leaning toward Black Minorca, particularly after that huge white egg you showed a pic of in new member introductions. Minorcas are well known for laying really large eggs. :eek:)

    I'm thinking Black Minorca, but Black Andalusian is still a possibility.
