Does anyone know about sexlink breed ? We have two of them,, ,they are black all over..... Cant find any pics of what they will look like when fully grown..
Oh no AccidentalFarm if that's a black sex-link that a BOY! The males display the barring, while the females have a mix of gold and black feathers. That's what makes them a sex-link.
Girls range from almost solid black with a few gold feathers to something like this:
Here is a male black sex-link:
I hope you have room for a little crower!
Ella, Where did you get your black sexlinks?...i my self have a pair of bsl's and love them.... however I really like the coloring of yours much more! Mine are solid black with the exceptions of some bronze feathers around there neck. I guess luck of the draw?
Stay well, Dom
Edit: I forgot to specifly im talking about your bsl pullet.
