    I was sold this bird as a black sex link. When I purchased it there were few down feathers left and it was mostly pin feathers. Legs are yellow with a black wash. None of the other 7 chickens including the 2 roos ever challenge this bird.

    Feathers are now black with a green sheen except on the breast where the feathers have fewer than a dozen brown specks.

    What is the consensuses on the gender/breed?

    I think it's a hen. I cannot tell what breed! Perhaps it's a mixture.....

    Looks like my australorp pullets; some of mine have black legs and some yellow/black.

    Or maybe a Jersey Giant? I am terrible with sexing, but I would guess pullet. She looks strikingly like my 16 week old Jersey Giant Pullet.

    She looks like my "11 week" old, Billie! I was told by the farm I bought them from that mine are partridge rock and black "something" - from what I've seen online I think mine are black sex links but I don't know for sure either.


    If it's already 15 weeks- I think pullet however, I posted my "age, breed, gender" question this morning too. [​IMG]

    Here is Billie (at 3 weeks, when I named them, I thought she was the questionable one)

    [​IMG] I took this photo yesterday "11 weeks"

    The one behind Billie is June - if I have a roo- it's June. June and Pearl (to the left) both have the gold-copper specks.


    This is so exciting!! [​IMG]
