    She came from my local Ace Hardware where they order their chicks from Ideal. The big comb is just throwing me off. Is this a black sex link pullet or a cockerel from some other breed that got mixed into their order? She is about 3 weeks old. She has A LOT more brown on her than my black sex link i got back in April did, but i know they vary in color.

    I dont think its a sex link, at this point it looks more like a partridge rock, but it would be easier to tell in a couple of weeks when its fully feathered.

    It's definitely not a Black Sex Link. I agree with Sunshine0235; I would repost it again in about 3 weeks.

    Not a Black Sex-Link. We'll have a better guess of what she is a few weeks!

    I agree, not a sex-link. Is she large fowl, or a bantam?
