    No we got them at the feed store and they kept escaping while I was building the brooder. She kept starring at them like she wanted to adopt them but didnt. Unfortunately something ate two of them at night then the third didnt make it as it was very small and week. Now we have a brooder inside and should get a clutch this week.

    The people I got her from had a nest box for her filled high with eggs they didnt collect. I think she is my best layer but its hard to tell since I have 8 brown egg laying hens.

    One of my all time faves was a black sex-link I had a couple years ago that looked alot like your girl.
    All of her sisters were almost solid black but she had alot of red on her.

    She follows me around the most out of all the chickens. Also she will eat out of our hand. The others wont. All came from diff people who could no longer keep them. We are not the "henton" for not wanted chickens lol. We love them.
