    [​IMG] This is my pretty all black hen with some greenish blue iridescent feathers on her back. She has a small black cone. She's of laying age, but no eggs yet. I got her at tractor supply around Easter and they couldn't tell me anything about her... Any advice on what breed or type? Thanks

    She looks like she could be svart hona, do you have any full body pictures of her?

    I don't right now she is the shyest, but I googled pics of that breed and she looks just like the hens. Thanks!! Do you know what her eggs will be like?

    Mostly likely, she's a Sumatra.

    x2, but that comb seems awfully black for a Sumatra though

    Sumatra hens are usually darker in the comb than males.

    She is all black, even her eyes. Do Sumatras have black eyes or does it vary?

    Sumatra is a very good possibility. Better than svart hona. I've seen Sumatra at tsc but never a svart hona. Full body pics would help a bunch

    Can we get a full body pic?

    From TSC, she's not a Cemani or a Hona, anything like that.

    She may be a Sumatra, but she seems kind of thick bodied from what I can see. My next guess is one of the Asian Blacks.
