    Here's a nice, shy girl I was given recently. I'm thinking she's a Black Sex Link. Any thoughts? Much appreciated.

    She looks like a Black Sex Link to me too. I have one exactly like that. They vary in how much red bleed through they get, some have lovely streaking like yours; others have hardly any except some red around the hackles.

    She should be a good layer for you. Nice birds. I've always enjoyed my BSL's.

    She is definitely a Black Sex Link hen. They are egg laying machines. I've raised them for years and they have been my best layers, consistently churning out over 300 eggs per hen per year. You should get loads of eggs from that girl. :eek:)
