    This is Mammie, approx. 7 mos. old - all black, no white or tan, with a green lustre to her. Yellow legs with black and single comb that flops over to one side. Ideas???
    Thanks, Laura

    hi,
    I would say maybe a black austrolorp but they have blackish grayish feet. maybe it is a mixed breed. try looking it up on the internet. maybe go to black chicken breeds. Or get a chicken breed book. I will look in mine.

    Quote:I disagree. That looks like a cross breed. She does not look like a Black Star or Black Sexlink. She does not have the right feather colors.

    It might be a buckye but my book shows a picture of the hen and it does not have a big comb.

    Looks a lot like my Blk Aussies... She may be a mix though... It's hard to tell with the all Blk breeds sometimes![​IMG]

    I looked up her description and she could be a Black Rock.

    If Plymouth Rocks come in black – and I'm not all that sure that they do [​IMG] – that would be my guess.
