    Okay so I say gamehen cross because of her body type and comb type, but only the OP knows for sure. . . Is that a single comb or pea comb? (sawtooth edge or rows of bumps)


    Single comb - Black Australorp.

    Pea comb - Game cross. Few hatcheries sell purebred Gamefowl.

    Blue/green tint actually means nothing except that the bird is solid black. A huge misconception is that only Black Australorps have that tint, but in reality, ALL black breeds do. Australorps are just better known because they're so common. [​IMG]
