    I ordered from Murray McMurray. My order included cuckoo maran, black star, whiting true blue and "rare exotic" (but i think I have a golden laced wyandotte as the exotic) ancona and red star)

    hatched april17, so 4 weeks old

    3 pictures of the same chick...

    Looks maybe like a black sex link?

    I'm not sure what it is but it's not Wyandotte. Wyandottes have a rose comb. When they are your ung the comb often looks like a double row with smal bumps on it. It won't be a distinct single comb like your chick has. Also golden laced wyandottes would also be showing obvious lacing in the wings and breast at that age.

    what does it mean if a black sex link has barring on the wings? see the white barring? is this a male, then?

    No, a cockerel would be barred all over. It's not unusual for a BSL hen to have a tiny bit of white.
