    I purchased 6 black sex-link chicks from TSC in April. One was all dark with black legs and beak, the other 5 had light spots on the top of their heads and yellow legs and light beaks. My all dark chick turned into a beautiful rooster with blue-black feathers and gold highlights on his shoulders. The chicks with the light spots on their head all turned with a barred rock feather pattern. Two of them are roosters and 3 of them are pullets. What kind of chicken is my dark rooster?

    Could that be a little bit of Golden Laced Wyandotte?

    I'm not sure about his breed (new to chickens) I just wanted to say how handsome he is [​IMG].

    Looks like he has little epaulets on his shoulders like a pilot. That's probably what I'd name him. LOL.
