    This chick started out solid black, feet, comb, everything. Now as a 16 wk old pullet she has reddish laced feathers on her neck and chest. Is this an EE? I can't tell if her legs are dark green or if it's my imagination.

    Looks more like a black sex link of some kind.

    Interesting. She came from Meyer hatchery and that is not one of the breeds listed. I agree though, that makes sense. Thank you!

    Its possible she's an Easter Egger, but she sure looks like a Black Sex Link.

    This time of year, substitutions aren't unheard of.

    Its odd that Meyers doesn't list Black Sex Links at all on their website that I can find.
