Can anyone tell me what breed the little guy is? I got him as a "rare" chick from Murray McMurray. H

    The black bird in the second picture looks like a Black Sex Link. I have some that have more brown to them, almost like half the bird Is brown. Same short comb and waddle.

    She's supposed to be a rare breed. I was hoping she was a black copper maran[​IMG]

    Maybe the mystery one is a Phoenix? The other is a black sex link pullet.

    Murray McMurray hatchery includes Black Sex Links in their Brown Egg Layer Assortment so that's probably what the second pic is and I agree that the first pic is probably a phoenix.
