    I can't figure out what this pullet is. She is all black with black legs, black single comb (slowly turning red), she has a little bit of white on her chest (that may just be because she is hatchery stock.)

    Any ideas?

    My sex-link girl has black with gold feathered head and chest. It doesn't look like my girl at all, but then I guess it could depend on what breeds were used for the cross

    Quote:I found out that they can look like yours (I have one like that too) and they can look like Corey's.

    None of my BSL's have any color on them but red around the neck... I've never seen that light white feathering. But, the legs look like my BSL's do, that very black hue.

    Quote:Not to confuse the issue, but Jerseys can be hatched with pink bottoms. I've had a few end up with them. It just means the breeding stock wasn't that great.
