    Looks like a black sex link to me, mine was like yours, until she feathered out. They are very pretty after they have all their feathers.



    When I read the title, I thought you meant someone had called you a mutant, I am still laughing.

    Quote:No, black sexlinks usually have grey legs - sometimes yellow, but not green.

    If he called it a mutant, he probably meant that it was a mix. You can't breed a black sexlink hen with a black sexlink rooster and come out with a sexlink - it would just be a mix. If those legs really are green, then it does not have two sexlink parents, but is mixed with something else.

    She looks a little like my sex-link pullet I just posted about. Mine is probably a BO/Cuckoo marans.

    That's not a pullet. [​IMG]

    He looks like he's feathering out how some of the buff x blue color crosses I've seen
