    I had started a previous thread when she was about 3 weeks old, but decided to start a new one since it will not allow me to edit the title.I was told she was a black sex link, but i was having my doubts. She is a little over 8 weeks old now.

    At first glance I'd say "No." She's got a lot of partridge coloring to be a BSL.

    A lot of people on my previous thread thought she might be a partridge rock.

    She is adorable. I think she is a black sexlink. It is not uncommon for them to be some what partridge. Especially if the parents are hatchery birds. here is a pic of one of mine:

    She is pretty. I've seen pics of bsl that look like that and thought mine might look like that too.

    I'm leaning towards her not being a Black Sex-Link.
