    What is she?

    As a chick she was all black with an redish head, I thought she was a Black copper marans, she looked just like this one:

    I will try to find a picture of her.

    Now she looks like this:

    She is about 13 weeks old and is very fast and her tail is almost as big as her body!
    She has some white spots on the tips of her wings and no red anywhere.

    Thank you!

    ETA: she has a straight comb.

    Quote:her feathers are all dull black and her face is pink, I had 2 sumatras and besides the body shape she has nothing in common.

    I just had a look through my breed book and couldnt find your chook!

    Wierdly enough she reminds me of my pepsi who is a white star, shes quite small, very quick and her tail was very big aswell. they are almost identical apart from the colour lol [​IMG].

    I would have to guess a mix xx

    Could she be a black sex link?

    I got her from MPC mixed special.

    She has a straight comb, and what is with the red head as a chick?

    I found the baby pictures!!

    She is the darker one, it is hard to see the reddish, but she did have a reddish ring around her face.

    I got one just like her from MPC! Sadly, I think mine's turning out to be a cockerel, (mega comb at just 6 weeks), but I'm pretty sure s/he's an andalusian. White earlobes, right? Here's a pic of mine as a baby.
