    I have been raising some chickens for a while now and I got 8 a while back. I have figured out that 5 of them are golden comets, and one is a barred rock. I have two that I am not sure what they are (they are absolutely beautiful, they have dark blue feathers in the light with a golden chest.) And I have researched everything I know between books and online. I was hoping someone here has possibly seen this breed and know what they are. Here is a few pictures of one of them. Thanks for the help!

    Sorry I tried to upload my photos from my phone and I guess it didn't go through. Had to get on my computer to upload. If anyone can tell what she is I'd love to know. This one is 1 of 2 of the same kind, and this one specifically is jasmine.

    Black sexlinks. They are usually a cross using a Barred Rock hen and a Production Red rooster. The resulting chicks can be sexed at hatching, and the pullets are outstanding layers of brown eggs.

    Lol I could have sworn that I check that but I guess I didn't. Looked up the images of black sexlink and that sure enough looks like my babies. Thanks you.

    Also while I'm on the subject of figuring things out as far as my chickens I might as well question these. I am 99% sure these are EE but once again I rather ask a bunch of people that have been doing this for a while than assuming since the furthest I have raised is juveniles. These are my next bunch coming up behind them, and hopefully they will a great addition to the coop as well. Number 1 is the same as 5, couldn't upload them all at once. 1 and 5 is Barbra, 2,3, and 4 is Patrica, and last but not least 6 and 7 is Penny. I am for sure Barbra is an EE and I am just about for sure Penny is an EE. The only one that I am kinda on the fence about is Patrica. I would be willing to say she is an EE as well with the other 2 but once again, I will leave it to some more trained eyes.

    They all look like Easter Eggers to me.
