    Thank you for info...I'm so very new to this 'chickens' thing....I did read some of the info on color sex links and my eyes started to cross...(i will review) do I understand, that many breeds can combine to "X" but not knowing the parents limits determining which breed?

    Yeah, it can get very complicated, the only reason I say black sex link is because I had one like her. They lay very pretty brown eggs, by the way.

    Quote:That is a possibility. My girl seems to have more black with beetle green tips. Would a better pic help?
