    White earlobes = not a black sex link. Perhaps she is a black leghorn pullet.

    They are supposed to, but I have never seen a black leghorn with truly yellow legs.

    Just typed 'black leghorn' in the search bar, and found a thread showing some black leghorns with truly yellow legs. Much better birds than what I had. She also might be a black Andalusian - I doubt Black Minorca because of the body type.
