    Do you think the little black hen with the long tail could be a Sumatra?

    I wouldn't think so. She appears to have white legs, and her comb and wattles are quite red. Sumatras have a lot of dark pigmentation on their faces. They kindof look more purple than red. Her body cariage is also quite upright for a sumatra, though the camera angle could be making it hard to see. PO, can you get a more level upclose picture of her? She also appears to have a top knot which would also make me think she is not a sumatra.

    With an upclose picture, I may change my mind...from this distance, it is really hard to tell.

    I see 2 roos and a white hen in the first pick. The roos look like mixes- I don't know what the white girl is- maybe an orpington if her legs are pink. The little black girl looks like a polish mix with that cute little top knot on her head [​IMG]

    That is as close as they will let me get. We adopted them, so we couldn't control their upbringing. They are very flighty. She does stand very upright, so I don't think the sumatra is all the way correct. She also has that tuft on her head.
