    Hi,

    I have had differing opinions as to the breed of this girl. Any input, I have been told a Barnvelder or Dark Cornish. Thanks for looking!

    I think it doesn't have enough gold to be a Barnvelder or Dark Cornish but maybe it's a mutt? Or a Black Sex Link?

    I don't think it's a sex link as it is from Meyer hatchery part of the brown egg layer pack. I am guessing a mutt.

    I think that she's a Dark Cornish. Barnavelders should have a single comb, and she has a pea comb, which Cornish have.

    Of the two - dark cornish due to the comb structure.

    She's definitely not a sex link. With that pea comb, I agree that she's a Dark Cornish.
