    My husband got these chickens when they were about 6 weeks old back near the end of April. He forgot the breed before he even got them home. I still haven't figured out what they are. He was told they are great egg layers although they haven't started laying yet. They're about 20 weeks old now. [​IMG]

    Shortly after we got them. [​IMG]

    Black Sex-Links, also known as Black Stars. They are not technically a breed, but are an egg production hybrid.

    I agree those are black sex links, and all hens. Once they hit their strides, they will flood you in nice brown eggs.
