    I was given a chick and do not know what breed it is. It is mostly black and has brown/gold tips on the feather. What is your guess?

    It looks to be a Golden Laced Sebright.

    Hrm, I am actually leaning towards it being a mix. Gold Sebright chicks are much lighter and varied in coloration. And the comb is black. Interesting bird, possible Silkie mix.

    That is very interesting. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is older.

    It might be a Black sex link.

    This is an updated picture of her at 6 months old. Are there any more guesses?

    Best guess, easter egger mix with that pea comb. Might give you a blue or green egg.

    Could be a black sex link. What color eggs does she lay?

    Whay kind of comb is that, anyway? Can't tell if it's pea or rose.
