    Hi all -

    Someone gave me some eggs for my persistant first time broody.

    Hatched this morning - day 20 - out of medium sized, pinkish brown egg.

    Coworker said it looked like Black Sex Link, however I googled sex links and feet should be yellowish instead of black.

    Any guess? (I'll get better pics tonight after work)

    What kind of comb does it have? And what color are the soles of its feet?

    Black sex links are red males on barred females, typically a rir or production red over a barred rock (both of which have yellow shanks and toes). The chick hatched out of a tinted egg, so it's not from a barred rock female. It's likely a bantam. What breeds does the person who gave you the eggs own?

    Goodness - I don't think she had any banties.

    The egg donors are a 4-H family I got my two new goats from. While I was picking up the goats, I heard lots of crowing and asked if I could take home some potentially fertile eggs.

    She sent me home with 5 large white eggs saying those were probably layed by her Brown Leghorns and 1 med-large sized brownish/pinkish egg.

    I candled them and put 4 of the nicest looking eggs under Mom. The one tinged and 3 white. All took.

    She said she has barred rocks, RIR's, EE's, brown leghorns.

    I'll see if I can get specifics from the husband who was incharge of the eggs and goats. The wife was more responsible for the 7 children they had. She's a stay at home schooling Mom in her early 30's. She also sent me home with a fresh loaf of bread I saw her take out of the oven.

    The little darling does have white on it. I couldn't tell this morning while it was still wet in a dark coop.

    She's looking more and more like a Black Star pullet to me.

    What do you all think with the updated pics?

    Doesn't look like an Australorp chick to me. It has too much black.
