    I have 3 X hens, (2 X Brahma's, gold & silver) but what type of chicken is the black one?
    I understand she is about 22 weeks old.

    She looks like a mix. Her face closely resembles my cuckoo maran's face, but she doesn't have barring.

    She's a mixed breed, mixed enough no specific breed jumps out. She may have some Australorp, as they're the most common straight combed black bird. I can't tell if her other color is gold or silver? And if she has white skin or not. If white skin and gold, she may be have some Orpington a ways back. If white skin and silver, maybe light Sussex.

    Thanks donrae.
    I was hoping she was a pure breed.
