    Nellie is 7 weeks old-was told she was a barred rock-obviously shes not. Any ideas what she may be? Black sex linked? Also, Nellie IS a she, right?

    definitely a girl. as far as breed [​IMG] no idea, i'd say australorp or jg but wrong leg color, i'd say sex-link but don't they usually have reddish feathers on their necks/backs/chests?

    Yup, a girl. It may be a Black Sex Link, and just have its reddish feathers come in late, or have none at all.

    I vote pullet, and probably a BSL.
