    Hiya I have had my chicken Jet for nearly 3 years, and have often wondered what breed she is... the lady I got her from told me she was a cross but could not remember what they were... has anybody got any ideas???

    and i appreciate it too, the photo is a spitting image of one of our girls gladys. all i'd been told when we got her was she was a cross too and always wondered what the cross was.

    The pic I posted did not have the colouring due to it looking a bit drab because of setting on eggs..

    Here are some more pics of the neck as I have just been shown some french copper black marans and they look very very similar
