    I've got one that looks a lot like that, also from McMurray. She has a full single comb, though, and kinda peacock type feathers transitioning from her gold (ish) neck to her back.

    I would have to say black sex link as well. I was told also that they lay really large brown eggs. Mine however lay what I would call a medium egg. Egg laying machines except in the cold weather we are having.

    Yes agree with everyone else. Sex Link.

    I have exactly the same, bu in the Uk they have a variety of names.

    they are amazing birds, I have 4, and one looks like a twin to yours.

    They are really lovely, great layers even in hard conditions, and lovely nature, beautiful eggs. Congrats.

    Quote:How old are your girls? If they're young they just haven't gotten up to full production yet. I thought my Delawares were going to be laying medium size eggs instead of large, but over the past couple of months I've been getting more eggs that challenge the RSLs in size.
