    This is Rerun. She is 24 weeks old. I got her as a chick and was told she was a Jersey Giant. I don't think she's a Jersey Giant. I've been told she's a Black Sexlink or a Black Copper Maran. Any other ideas on what she might be? She's not laying yet, so I don't know what color her eggs will be.

    She's likely a Black Sex-Link.

    X4 on Black Sex Link. They are egg laying machines. You should get loads of eggs from her. :eek:)

    Thanks everyone. She's finally started laying, and her eggs are small, brown, and speckled. She's only laid twice, and the second egg was a little larger than the first which was really tiny.

    Her eggs will continue to get bigger as she matures. Good luck in getting loads more eggs.
