    We have a chick that we bought along with 7 others at a local feed store from Privett Hatchery. We were told she was a Black Sex Link. As she gets a bit older she is not developing the same feather pattern as our other Black Sex Link the same age. She is about 4 weeks old.

    On the front of her on her chin she has a large white spot. And she has a white bottom. We have looked at pics of Black Australorps and Marans and she does not match any of those. We have posted pics of her and some thought it was a later developing Sex Link.
    Seems to me that the feathers should be similar to our other since they are the same age though.
    We would like to see if any of you can help us in identifying her (or maybe him).
    She also has a yellow comb not black like her sister (although we know those will obviously change color as they get older).

    Here is her sister for comparison:

    If her feet are white on the bottom then she's an austrolorp, if not then you can rule that out since austrolorps have white bottomed feet.

    not white, but yellow.


    Anyone else? It has a very fun personality too. It jumps out of the brooder every time I open the lid, and it loves us humans! I think one of the most personable birds I've seen so far. hmmm now I need to look up fun and perky bird qualities to see what we've got!

    So based on the picture of her sister, does everyone agree that she is not a Black Sex Link? She has none of the coloration at all of her sister.
