    I am starting to think we might have bred a black sexlink by chance. We just collected some eggs and threw them under a broody hen. Three weeks later four of the eggs hatched. One of the chicks was mostly black. At the time we had two roosters, a Barred Rock and a RIR so either one could have been the father and we have both Barred Rock hens and RIR hens.

    A black sexlink is a barred rock hen with a RIR roo. You got yourself a black sexlink pullet there. Enjoy!
