    I'm a new chicken mom and I have no clue what breed my girl here is. She's 2 months old here. Big girl next to my bantam!

    Pretty sure she's a black star. Cross between Barred Rock and RIR or possibly NH Red. I have one who looks very much like her. I call her Stevie Mix.

    Looks like a Black sex-link (aka Black star). They are hybrids usually a cross between RIR or New Hampshire Red rooster with a Barred Rock hen. They are bred so they can be sexed at hatch and a great egg layers for at least two years.
