Help Identifying Breed of 4 1/2 Week Old Chick

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
A recent order of chicks was botched and I believe we have identified all except for one. Based on our internet search we think that what we thought was going to be an Australorp may be a black sex link. This chick started getting brown feathers on the chest and head. Based on the pictures, can anyone identify this chick? Thanks so much for your insight:)

Thank you, Queen Misha! That is what we had suspected. We are happy that she is a pullet too! We weren't sure how many roos we'd end up with when our order was mixed.
