So I changed my mind on red I think. I might go back, I just didn't like how alot were only red under the right lighting, and were paper bag brown in the light.
Again, I might change my mind again.

but anyway who are some good breeders of black poodles in IL, or in states surrounding IL or who air mail.

I don't know any breeders in that area but you can email this club to get a list http://www.greatlakespoodleclub.com/GLPC breeder referral.htm

You can also go to www.poodlesonline.com and check out what size and colors you want and follow up with those breeders. I noticed that Spirit Poodles had a black standard female available in the next week or two. Good luck!

Blacks are very beautiful... it's a shame they don't photograph well. I've seen some blacks in show cuts and some in pet cuts and I have to say I love them in a pet cut, they really look velvety.

Most black animals are hard to photograph. I have a Rottweiler and a black cat, that rarely/never take a good picture. It's frustrating b/c both are such pretty animals. I have a total of three decent pics of Harley and pretty much none of Addy.

The only thing I don't like about blacks is their fading color. If they aren't a good black they will be grey by the time they are 4. Mine is already fading and he's not even 2.:(

I know. I saw a black this weekend that was 13 yrs old!!! She hardly had any grey hairs on her at all!! Now that would be a black line I would want to look into!

This is why you need to do research on the bloodlines if you do not want a faded black.

Yup and since I bought Harry as a pet I didn't even think or care about that sort of thing. He's almost starting to look like a blue on his body because his hair is lightening up. He isn't out of good lines at all but he's a good boy.

Matrix is very bad black, but that is partially due to his epilepsy we think. Nice blacks are hard to find but totally gorgeous when you do.

Black is my second favorite color. I almost like it as much as the Reds. I think it would be SO COOL to have one of each... they kinda match, both with the black pigmentation! So stunning walking down the street with a jet black and a stunning red! lol
... But I'm reminding myself as I write this that I only want ONE dog!! My life is too busy for more then one!

It is hard to find a good Black any more. Breeders have really shot themselves in the foot by constantly breeding back and forth between Black and Cream and by dyeing bad Blacks in the breed ring.

I would contact Cynthia Huff of Safari Kennels. She has a stud dog imported from Sweden who is a terrific, inky black color. If Cynthia does not have a litter coming, she may know someone who does.

Cascade Kennels in AZ just had a litter sired by the Swedish import, Yannick (from Grandeur Kennels). Yannick has been used a lot and his puppies always seem to be inky black
