    These came out of the pullet bin and have grown super fast. I am thinking black sexlink, but as you can see there is definately some color variation on them.

    The first one looks like a BSL. I have no idea what the others are.

    The others could be f2 sexlinks, since SLs don't breed true. F2s tend to have a lot more red bleed-through and "wild type" wing patterning.

    I don't recall my Black sexlinks legs being that color and the feet look different some kinda way, color is off. Maybe just a color variation?

    The first one looks like the legs are darkening like my SLs. The others could have yellow legs if they're f2s because of the RIRs yellow legs
