    This rooster doesn't look like any pictures I've seen of black sex links, but of all the breeds listed when I got my eggs, black sex link is the closest. I got my eggs over the internet, and was told there were the following breeds: black sex link, ameracauna, buff orpington, white leghorn and rhode island red. Could it be a mixture of any of these?
    Thanks for your help!

    Ya that chest does not look ok. Does it have an impacted crop? Does that lump feel soft or hard. Did you look under the feathers to see what the skin looks like?

    How would I determine if it has an impacted crop? And is I look under the feathers, exactly what would I be looking for? And if it is an impacted crop, can I do anything to help fix it?
