    I got her a at deceased estate and have no notion of her breed.
    I thought she might be a Black Australorp, but I've never had one.

    I think I see some red on the front of her neck and breast. If that's the case, I would say she's a black Sex Link.

    What color are the bottom of the feet?

    * Black Jersey Giants - should have Willow/Black legs and Yellow on the bottom of there feet.
    * Black Australorp - should have Black/Slate legs and Pink-ish color on the bottom of there feet.
    * Black Orpingtons - should have Black/Slate legs and White color on the bottom of there feet.
