What's this bantam hen's breed?

    This was my first chicken ever. She's since gone from this planet, but she was the most affectionate, loving chicken ever. She was the bantiest of the bantams; she could easily sit in my palm, and I have little girl hands!

    I know that this isn't a great picture, but it's all I have left. Special notes of things you can't see really well in the picture:
    -She was heavily booted.
    -She was four-toed, and the skin on her feet was a palish yellow.
    -Her feathers were uniformally black with green iridescence, except for a few gold flecks around the back of her neck.
    -She was bearded.
    -Her tail shape was unique, somewhat akin to a Seabright.

    Any guesses? Thanks so much!

    probably some sort of D'Uccle cross.

    D'Uccles body shapes DO look pretty close to how she was shaped. Thanks! Anyone have any guess as to what the other half/halves of the equation might be, heh?
