    Well, black stars are a mixed breed, so not sure how to answer that [​IMG]

    If she came from a hatchery, she is a black star/black sex link. If she came from a breeder, she may be a black sex link or some other mix.

    I can't see her comb well, but it doesn't look especially mature, ie red and plump. Is she squatting around you?

    Have you tried confining her? I can see several places in those pics a bird could hide a nest of eggs.

    X2 on that. Black Star is one of several labels under which some hatcheries market their Black Sex Links, which are hybrids produced by crossing a red gene rooster with a barred gene hen.

    It means that they agree also with what was already said. :)
