    I was given a pair of these birds. They are about a year old. Can someone help with their breed so I can learn more about them. Thanks soooooo much.

    hmmm....you don't think they're the same? There's some obvious differences, i guess I just assumed they were the same breed though. There's some obvious similarities too. Very different personalities though!

    We were looking through some chicken magazines today and came across the black sumatra breed. I know my chickens aren't totally black, but their body style and tail carriage are so much like the pictures I saw of the sumatras. Could they be a possible cross?? Any opinions?

    Quote:They have game in them, which is what the Sumatra was bred for, the same comb type as a sumatra...so go with a sumatra or sumatra mix. They do not appear to be dubbed, so I agree with you. Sumatra or Sumatra cross.
