    Got this little hen from Rural King. She was in with Buff Brahmas and Black Sex Links, but was not black like the other Sex Links. She was a little darker color than the Buff Brahmas, kinda a chocolate latte color, but no feathered feet. They thought she was an Easter Egger, but I knew she wasn't that because of having yellow feet. Here is a current picture. Her feet are still yellow. Any thoughts?

    Edited again to add more photos. Sorry about the wire in the view, they are in a chicken tractor, and shes more interested in exploring than posing for photos.

    I think she's just a light black sex link.

    Shes around 14 weeks old. I will try to get one of her standing, but she likes "nesting" like that a lot, lol.

    I agree, the lady I got my Australorp and SLW from had a bunch of light ones like that.

    Any idea what causes it? Wasn't sure if maybe a difference in the breeds used to create the chick or something like that.

    Just a genetic fluke I think. Some body that really knows genetics may have a better answer.
