    i got her as a normal black sexlink chick with a red face, except she was blue. i always thought she was just special, then i saw pics of lemon blues, now i don't know.

    what is sex-link? i've heard this word in this forum a lot of time but dunt know da meanings
     
  3. A sexlink is a chicken that is crossed with another type of chicken for purposes of identifying sex when they hatch. If i were to cross a rhode island red with a barred rock i would be making black sex links(also known as red rocks). when they hatch they will wither have a white spot on their head or not distinguishing whether you have a pullet or a cockerel. Also they are known to be hardier than their respective breeds.[​IMG]

    Wow, what a gorgeous chicken. The head looks like a Black Star (sex link) but the rest is blue so who knows what you've got!... but probably not a sex link.

    I'd get a Blue Andalusian to cross with her... would be fun to see the offspring.

    I dont know what she is, except perhaps mixed breed. There is no such thing as a blue sexlink that I'm aware of.
