    Well, since it was more or less confirmed that one of our BR chicks is a roo, I figured we should get another pullet to "replace" that pullet spot, right? So I concocted a story that we needed to go to the feed store today since we were getting groceries nearby "just so we don't run out of feed"-even though we have half a bag. Well I casually browsed the plants they had out front to keep myself from bee-lining it to the chickens. I look up... and the BF is already checking them out! So I rush over, and we pick one out, and here's the gorgeous girl. I haven't a clue what she is, but she is very pretty and super sweet. Very dark body with a coppery cast to her, the feathers on her wings are coming in as a coppery brown as well. Her feet are very dark, and her underside is a splotchy grey/yellow. What could she be?

    Yeah, I was wondering about her being a black sex-link, but all of the pictures I've found on google so far show them with yellow legs, or partial yellow legs, and hers are solid... dark brown/green/slate whatever color you want to call it. I dunno. She's pretty and very sweet, just thought I'd ask in case anyone knew for sure or had something that looked like her!
