    Last spring I purchased some barred rock chicks. As they grew all but 2 grew into barred rock chickens, but 2 were all black but their combs are kind of charcoal with a ting of red. I've been trying to find out what breed they are

    Sorry, I posted this on my phone and thought I uploaded the picture. In person her comb isn't as red as the picture shows.

    I'll have to check. They don't seem to be a huge bird. For sure not as big as my Orpingtons
