    We ordered 8 girls from mypetchicken.com and I'm thinking they may have messed up. Please tell me I'm wrong. This is Oprah, our 7 week old black star.

    My Oprah looks nothing like yours! I think you may have Opie instead. [​IMG]

    if it's really a "black star" that is a sex-link chicken.

    that's what i thought! but it just seems like a rooster. the other "black star" we got with "her" looks kinda the same...

    Looks like a different roo got in the bunch. That does not even look like a black star roo.. they are barred... black sex link girls have gold in their hackles too instead of silver.

    It's a hen. The second picture is a pig. [​IMG]

    If I'm wrong wait another 10 weeks and bring it over.
    Tell your Mom I said hello.

    She said they were only 7 WEEKS old.... I can see 4 months being a hen, but not 7 weeks.
