    Greetings fellow Chicken enthusiasts,

    My chicks are growing up wonderfully, we ordered a mix batch of laying chicks from McMurrary hatchery. I have figured out most of the breeds but this one has me stumped. I think it just might be a color variation on something simple but I don't know. They are all supposed to lay brown eggs. I have 3 or 4 of this type of chick, some are more black and some are have more of the brown lacing all over.


    This is the little one in question:

    Not sure the breed, but that is not a wyandotte. They have rose combs. This looks like a single comb.

    My nearly six month old SLW has the same size wattles as this girl [​IMG]

    I was thinking EE. The BSL's have black heads and gold/black coloration but she has a gold head and more golden-brown with a little black on her body. My EE pullet looks just like her.

    An EE would have a pea comb, muffs, beard, green legs. This chicken has NONE of those things. She is a very likely a black sex link with lots of red leakage.

    At any rate, she is a mutt (EEs are mutts too, but they typically lay green eggs - a trait that is associated with a pea comb, which this chicken does not have)... and a pretty one!!! [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your input. I do agree with the consensus of black sex link. Not that I mind they are pretty and hopefully will lay lots of brown eggs after they grow up.

    another vote for the bsl, and they will cover you in huge brown eggs!
