    Hey all! So, one of the three hens in my flock is something of a mystery to me. Here she is:


    Any ideas as to what breed she is? My best guess was an Australorp or black sex-link. Sorry the picture isn't better. She's extremely shy and it was the best I could get out of her. I think she is about two years old, and you can't see it well in this picture, but she has just a tiny bit of orange-red feathers peeking out on the front of her neck.

    seeing as her legs are yellow and not black i'm gonna guess sex-link

    I am not an expert but I am guessing "Black sex link."

    I would agree that the best possibility, in my opinion, is BSL. Not all BSL have gold leakage. I'm sure you have done some reading on the cross to know that it would be pretty easy to get one if the right chickens are running around.

    Yep, that's kind of what I figured. Just wanted to see what others thought. Thanks very much, all [​IMG]
