    Better side photos are needed, it could be an Australorp or a black jersey giant, can't see it's legs either.

    I think she's too small to be any of those breeds. Bantam size. I was thinking maybe Japanese bantam??? But here are some more pics, will take more later...

    If she is bantam, she could be a black OEGB??? Maybe a mix. She's beautiful whatever she is :)

    OEGB? What's that? And thank you! These pics are not very good though, she looks MUCH better in real life! :)

    Old English Game Bantam. They are a very popular bantam breed, and are available in a bunch of different colors.

    You are welcome. She looks like an Old English Game Bantam to me. They come in all kinds of colors including black. They are great birds, and popular. Good broodies and great mommas,

    She is likely a Black Old English Game Bantam.

    Where did you get her from?
    She could be a number of breeds.
    She could be a Bantam Black Plymouth Rock.
