    Hi,
    these are the last 3 hens I received today from the lady. Her husband passed away a couple of years ago and they were his chicks. Now she does not want to take care of them anymore. So now they are mine.. The 3 are all standard size.
    These two are black with some brown/red around the neck.

    This one is all black.

    [​IMG]I'm sorry, if I am taking up space with all my separate posts - I thought it would be better to do them separate. Lesson learned.

    Not sure, maybe the last one is an Australorp?
    Best of luck!
    Nice ladies!

    Top 2 look like Black Sex-link hens and the bottom looks like a Black Australorp.

    I have a black sex link that looks just like the bottom one.

    I'm saying you have all three, black sex links.
     

  10. BA have pink bottoms of their feet. Flip her over and check. I did have a solid black sex-link. So you may have 3 sex-links. They lay wonderfully!
