I'm about 6 weeks , am a roo? Or hen?
You are a hen! BSL (Black Sex Link) roosters would look like a BR (Barred Rock).
Are sex links good egg layers? And about what age do they start to lay?
Oh they are fantastic egg layers! I have 2 BSL hens and they lay wonderful, large, brown eggs!!
Very active chicken, and does better as free ranged, but as long as it's outside it don't matter. Here is a picture of my BSL and their eggs.
They are beautiful.. I'm super excited.
Oh, trust me you won't be disappointed. They are very friendly, and have sweet personalities. You should post a picture of the chick when it gets older, so I can see how much it's grown!!
Also, they start laying at about 4-7 months old.
I also have a BSL pullet that's the same age as yours, so we can both share pics!!
Here is mine now:
I have a 2 month old BSL pullet. She's a crazy brave chicken! She runs into the adult chickens and steals yummy morsels from them, then runs off and avoids the other chicks to eat her stolen treats.
I had no plans of getting a BSL on purpose. She came in a mixture of 5 pullet chicks from Ideal and I was disappointed with her, thinking she would be solid black. After a little research and watching her antics, I actually plan on keeping her and really enjoy seeing her about
