Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating

A  striking hen,  jet black (providing a glorious  sheen in the sun) with silver feathering, laying 260 cream eggs a year. This friendly bird looks great and tends to be our largest breed ( but not by much)  proving to be a popular all round bird.

    I was hoping to find a nice black hen today and I wasn’t disappointed. The Sussex rock we brought home is a real black beauty. Lovely glossy feathers and the darkest of eyes. Unfortunately there is no option to attach a photograph, I would have loved to shared her photo to a customers gallery.
