    So I picked up two roosters from the feed store. The lady that owns the place told me they were black sexlinks. I don't think so . any ideas? They are both young still. Have bright yellow legs.

    He is just gorgeous in color!!

    I believe that is a Black Sex Link boy - They are normally supposed to be a plain barred look with flecks of red, but yours just may carry a lot more red genes in him.

    Almost LOOKS like some mix with a barred rock
    All the barring and the colors are neat!

    I don't beleive that they are BSL but maybe a further out cross....like Unknown roo X BSL hen or BSL roo X Unknown hen. I have had two similar versions of yours.

    This was my first but he did not have any black barred feathers.

    I still have this one, and he has some black barring. He is still very young.
