    Can someone please help me identify the beauty in the front of this little flock. I thought she might be a BC Marans (English standard maybe?), but I am not sure? I know the two with her are a Jersey Giant and Ameraucana pullet.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I researched the Star and was able to find a few pics that look similar to her! She is super sweet. Guess I know whay I couldn't find her in my Poultry breeds book! LOL![​IMG]

    Black Sex Link, these are the 2 I got this past April...the lighter one, is my fav...she runs up to me and waits for me to hold her, then honks at me...too cute!

    The first pic looks a lot like her! Awesome! I feel better knowing what she is [​IMG]

    I visited the hatchery (Ideal) my friend ordered her from. Their website says that they sell the Rhode Island Red and Barred Rock Black Star Sex-Link. I believe the mystery is solved!

    I think that she is probably a late February, early March baby. She has only been with me about a week. I will update you all when she begins laying. I have a Barred Rock hen. She lays every 2-3 days and gives nice creamy colored eggs. Any idea what hers will look like and how often she will lay once she starts?
