I'd be questioning the authenticity of that website, as they called a Black Sex Link a cross between a Barred Rock and a Rhode Island Red. The pic they have is of a Barred Rock. MY Black Sex Links were solid black!

Black sex link males ARE barred and their pictures are a decent representation of the typical black sex links.
Not every black sex link develop the rusty red feathers on the head and neck but most do.

@21hens-incharge has it right :)

Townline has been around a long time too.

I just added two of these Pearl Star to our flock today! The picture Townline Hatchery used for them online and in their catalog is the same picture they used last year for Brown Leghorn, that might explain the white earlobes.

I have an 8 week old pearl star pullet and she's the friendliest, most outgoing of the bunch. I wasn't planning on getting her, but she was too pretty to pass up and has proved to be my best choice
My girls (3) of them all very friendly too! I wasn’t planning on getting them either but the farm store didn’t have exactly what I wanted so, I grabbed these girls. Very friendly and I really like the way they look!
