    Hey got a question!
    I have a 6 week old black Minorca pullet. This is my first Minorca, and I was told they would be all black, which my girl was until she feathered out a bit more. She has a bunch of feathers around her neck that look to have gold lacing? Is this normal for the breed, or is she perhaps not a purebred? I don't care either way, she's not for show and I think it looks pretty lol just curious. Thanks![​IMG]

    Not a Minorca. Probably a Black Sex-link. Where did you get her from?

    New Egypt Agway (now called Animals & Gardens unlimited or something). She was in the tank labeled as black Minorca pullets. Oh boo!! Was looking forward to having one heard they were beauties. Oh well haha
