    Yesterday we rescued 4 more hens. A BR, Golden Nugget, an EE, and this one. I was thinking copper Marans or BSL but the way she holds her chest high and large tail high, I am at a loss as to what she is. I'm assuming a mixed breed? She has, black, iridescent green feathers on her body. TYIA

    Doesn't look like a bsl to me. What color is her skin, and does she have feathers on her legs? What type of comb, it's hard to tell from the pic. It seems I'm seeing a residual crest perhaps? How many toes?

    I haven't held her yet so not sure on skin color. Looks like has some black skin around eyes. Not sure if she was picked on or what. Colors look like our other BSL but shape doesn't. She has a single comb which is very small and flops over. I have no idea how old they are as they are rescues and were in a bad situation. She has 4 toes no feathers on legs from what I could tell.

    I think that it is very possible that the black bird is a Black Sex-Link. She could also be just a mix, however.

    Just checked on them again. Has same color leg skin as our BSL (blue/ blk). More red than ours.

    This is our BSL (she has no tail right now due to a dog attack on the flock:( she's fine but was tossed around so she looks a lil rough right now)

    Today they all got to mingle. Things are going pretty well, minimal pecking:) Here are a few of the new ones, I wasn't able to get pics the BR though. She's the most social too! [​IMG]
