    I have two of these little ladies! As chicks they were completely black. Now, they have white little tooshies, and are sprouting from chest feathers that are reddish brown.

    I thought at first maybe they were Black Sexlinks but I'm not sure. Anyone else have a guess? [​IMG]

    Based off your description it does sound like a cross breed, or even just a mutt chicken. But considering how young your birds are, it might be best to post pictures when they're older. Personally, I think they're probably black star hens (as the couple I currently have a majority of black feathers with red/orange breast feathers).

    Here she is at another angle.
    Thank you everyone who commented! I felt pretty confident in my assessment but it's nice to have confirmation from more experienced bird keepers!
