Thank you!

Black Sex-links

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I don't think she's a Black Sex-Link. Her color is too much like what you would see on a Black Breasted Red Hen or a Dark Wheaten Hen.

Definitely not a welsummer, they don't have black on them.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Is this the same bird in every pic? The bird in the top pic doesn't look to have all the black in its feathering that the bird in the bottom pic has, but maybe it's just the different angles at which the pics were taken.

I agree not a Welsummer and not a black sex link.    Are the photos pictures of several hens or the same one from different views?

The lighting was poor.  They aren't so much black as a mahogany color.  I'm getting dark brown eggs that I thought were from my three Marans but yesterday there were four dark eggs.  Mystery solved... they're Welsummers. 

 

Thank you all for your helpful responses.
