    This hen has taken up living around my hog pen and I was wondering if any of you knew what breed it is, favors an Australorp maybe? Notice the colors around the neck sort of an orange.

    It's definitely not a Black Australorp. It appears to be an American Game hen.

    I agree that's it's definitely not an Aussie is it to small for a black Sumatra
