    Hey guys, i dont have any pics of this chicken right now i'll try and get one soon but for now i will just explain how it looks and maybe you guys can give me some input. so this bird has an all black body but its neck and head are a very light brown,it has black legs or a dark blue slate and it has straight black eyes. Its also a bit smaller than the other birds i got with it so i was thinking maybe a banty. She is also every bit if not more as flighty as a leghorn.... i got two ameraucana's and a welsummer along with her and they all are pretty used to me now but she goes crazy as soon as i try and grab her to put her up at night (bigger coop in process) she screams and does what ever it takes to get away:rant. The other night i held her for a minute and she calmed down a bit it seemed like but tonight it was the same ol' stuff. anybody want to guess????[​IMG]
