    I think you mean black Sexlink I would keep that breed in mind as for figuring out this hens breed. But she could even be a mixed breed.

    Are you in the UK?

    It looks like a black sex link to me. Not sure if that may be a trade name for a bsl in your area, like here we have Black Stars, etc.
