    Ok, I have a question so I figured I would ask you guys since what better way to get questions answered than the great world wide web and it's amazing community. I have a hen, a banty, who is all black and the most gorgeous bird I own. She has feathered feet and looks a little portly. Here is a terrible picture of her below. Anyone have any idea what she is? She was given to me by a friend of my dads and he had tons of chickens. He couldn't keep track of them all...

    sooooo any ideas?

    I would say it is a cohcin cross silkie as it has black skin. How many toes does she have?

    I think first guess was correct her face is becoming a bit more red. As seen below

    Yep, the Black Cochins do seem to have a fair bit of black in the face before they mature.
