The basics:
The Norfolk Grey is a rare breed of chicken that was developed Norfolk, England. It was created by Fred Myhill right before the first World War, and was called named Black Marias. The name was dropped shortly, and changed to Norfolk Grey.

The breed is believed to have been developed from Silver Birchen Games and Duckwing Leghorns. The Norfolk Gray was declared extinct in the early 1970’s, but four birds were found in 1974. This small flock revived the breed.
