    About four months ago I got some chicks from a local farmer and can tell that some are easter eggers because of the beards and the barred rock is easy to identify, but I have a mostly black hen that doesn't have a beard like the easter eggers. She has a little bit of green sheen to her and has black legs and a black beak. She's very docile and is about the same size as my easter eggers. She has little red wattles. Does anyone know what breed she is? Sorry the pictures might be sideways. For some reason when I uploaded them, they somehow turned sideways. Thanks in advance!

    Thanks - I'll have to check the bottoms of her feet tomorrow when there's some daylight... I was thinking maybe Australorp... (sidewinder - lol!)

    I think it's what you'd call a single comb? It's kind of hard to see because it's really short...
