    Hi I am very new to the chicken thing and would like to know if anyone knows what breed of chicken this is. The man I got it from thinks all his chickens are Rhode Island Reds. I know this not to be the case and have found the correct breeds of many of my birds but I have not been able to pinpoint this particular birds breed. She has black almost blue green featers and the feathers right under her beak are a crimson red. Also she seems to be sneezing. What can I give her to treat this? I don't want it to be passed on to my entire flock.
    Thanks alot any help or insite on her breed or how to help the sneezing would be greatly apreciated!

    Sounds like a black sex-link, but without a picture it is hard to be sure.
