    My wife ( the one who didn't want me to get chickens but has mellowed ) wants me to get Korean Ogol chickens next year. Are any of these in the United States? They are pretty rare even in Korea.

    Here is a link: http://www.animalpicturesarchive.com/view.php?tid=2&did=12529

    These
    are really a black chicken, black skin, black bones, black meat.

    I have searched BYC, the internet, found zero for sources.

    I doubt they could be imported as I looked on the USDA site and Korea is on the no-no list for Avain Flu.

    Any help on finding these would be appreciated.

    I would not be surprised if they are very closely related to the Black Sumatras.

    Sounds to me like they're related to silkies, just different feathering.

    Very beautiful! They do look like sumatras, makes sense, they are all from the same parent stock.

    That is the same as the one I listed. So where do I find them?

    That's a poser because most of the Asian countries are probably on our no-import list due to "bird flu". Your best bet would be to try to find a breeder in Europe or Canada.
