    I got this chick with my "Hatchery Choice Pullet Special". I ordered 15 chicks and rec'd 16. This is the only chick that was all black when I got her. She is now 6 weeks old and has started to get brown in her feathers around her neck, she is so pretty. What is she?

    Is the one on the left also a Black Sex Link? I got three that are black with white on their faces and chest. I'm assuming the chick on the right is a Barred Rock, I got three of those also, though one is a lot lighter then the other two. And yes, that is a cockerel that was supposed to be a red pullet in the back.

    Could be a Jersey Giant or an Australorp too. I'm not seeing the red on the neck that black sex links usually get.
