    I am not sure what breed this hen is. Both the BR & BSL look similar. My girl is quiet, she tends to keep to herself, and has big eyes.[​IMG]

    Barred rock hens and roosters are both barred and have yellow legs. Black sex link roosters are barred with lighter colored legs. Black sex link hens are black with gold leakage on their neck, breast, and sometimes back. They also have light colored legs.
