    i have this bird that i hatched 8 weeks ago. i had eggs from several sources and they were all labeled. however most of them hatched while i was out so i don't know who is who. i believe this one is either a black sex link or a black copper marans. if it is a sex link it is from a bcm roo over a barred rock hen. any ideas? she is very pretty but very standoffish

    I have one I'm wondering about, too. Someone told me to look for white skin on the bottom of her feet and on her armpits, er, wingpits [​IMG] Also, they're supposed to have a hawkish head, not too rounded. I really don't know on your bird, but either way she's a looker!
