    I have a black bantam hen amongst a flock of other identified chickens. i am fairly new to chicken keeping and i cant easily identify chickens. its not too important that i find out this chicken's breed, but i would just like to now what chicken i'm dealing with, if it needs special care or not. i tried researching but i was clueless about where to start. i think it might be a black rosecomb with a shorter tail

    My hen resembles a black rose bantam with white ear lobes, a red rosecomb and feet colour, but unlike a rosecomb bantam it does not have a long tail and a short curved back.

    What could it be?[​IMG]
