    This is a black-sex link, should be a pullet, what do you think ?

    Beautiful bsl girl. If she should be laying real soon--you might want to go on an egg hunt!

    My BSLs are solid black pullets (BR & BCM) and the Roos looked like a feather footed Barred Rock. But since they can be made with such a wide variety of parent stock....who knows??

    Yes, she is a pullet though.

    Ok ... The comb & wattle were so large & bright red I was wondering if I had some strange sex-linked roo [​IMG]
    I have another black sex-link the same age and that one doesn't have the prominent comb or waddle, but has more red markings

    These sex-links are about 16 weeks old, got them from a local feed store.

    I have a black sex link too but she is much younger, about 9 weeks old
    [​IMG]
    I think they are very beautiful birds. If yours is 16 weeks old and has that red comb & waddles then she must be close to laying right? Im still new and have not gotten an egg yet, just guessing from other threads Ive read [​IMG]
