    We don't have our own chickens yet but plan to get some hens in the Spring. 3 days ago this sweet thing wandered onto our farm and decided to stay. Can anyone help me identify the breed and sex? [​IMG]

    Looks like a possible black sex link female.
    Or just a barnyard mix

    Agreed. BSLs are egg laying machines, and, depending on her age, I suspect you will get lots of eggs from her. :eek:)

    It's definitely a hen. Could be a black sex link, or could simply be a barnyard mix.

    Looks like everyone agrees she looks like a black sex link. Thanks so much. She's safe and happy in a little home until we get a hen house built.
