    Can anyone guess the breed (is it a pure breed or a mix) of this little black bantam hen? I saw it at a farm park the other day & fell in love with it!!! (the ear lobes should be red i think, the white is just a fault)

    black minorca is my guess. The white earlobes are normal for that breed by the way.

    She's probably a Minorca bantam.

    Agreed. Or, she could just be a random mix breed.
