    Here is a pic of my favorite hen, Amnesty. I know, bizarre name, but that's what I get for promising my 14 year old niece should could name a chicken when they came up from GA to visit. :

    Is she a black sex link, or a plain old mutt? Either way, she's my favorite. She's the sweetest of all the hens and runs for scritches when she see me. [​IMG]

    Thanks-

    She kind of looks like a mutt to me and the back of her does look like a sex-link. I have had quite a few and they never had that white going on with the chest area. She is cute, I love mutts if in fact that is what she is. They always have the neatest coloring!
     
  3. Beautiful purpley green sheen to her black feathers! Sorry i'm not familiar with her breed. But she is lovely.

    Well, she was sold to me as an Australorpe, and I know she's not one of those. I didn't when I got her as a chick, but she hasn't got the coloring right for it.

    I'm okay with the mutt thing, lol. I was just wondering if there was a name out there for her kind of mutt.

    Thanks-
    Jess
