    I have two Black Sexlink pullets, about 15 weeks old now. I noticed that one of them is getting very red in the face, comb and wattles while the other has black skin in these areas.
    Is this variation typical for BSLs, or did someone end up in the wrong bin? I thought this might be normal depending on whether they had different parents or combinations of genes... Both came from McMurray, via my local farm store.
