    Hello!

    I cannot tell what breed this beautiful bird is. She (i think) is mostly black with some white streaking around her neck. She is very stately with dark eyes.

    Since being known as new chicken enthusiasts, yesterday we were gifted four new birds. The owners had no idea what birds they had! We got a salmon faverolle, a speckled sussex and a silver laced wyandotte.
    The silver laced wyandotte is showing her fluffy butt behind mystery girl in picture 2.

    Any ideas? THANK YOU

    Oh thank you Gray Farms! I've never heard of Asian Blacks but lots of the features seem to match the little info I can find.
