    she is my newest addition. i don't know how old she is, only that she isn't quite fully grown and isn't laying yet.
    she has yellow foot bottoms, so i was thinking she has some jersey giant. but she also has golden flecks on her breast feathers and around her face and neck too, so maybe black sexlink.
    but none of that explains the sparse foot feathering. (you can see it in the second picture.)
    any thoughts?

    Black Sexlink made with a feather footed breed or possibly Black Copper Marans would be my guesses.

    I'd probably guess at a BCM.

    Not a Marans.



    She looks like either a Black Sex-Link or some sort of cross between a Laced bird and Black bird. She's a pretty mutt, whatever she is. [​IMG]

    Definitely not a marans, leg color is wrong. Some kind of cross but hard to tell.
