Purchased this chick from the local feed store. I was buying Jersey Giants, but this little gal dosn't look like the others. I really don't care what she is, I just want to know what I have. Thanks.

She's a pretty girl. I had no idea black sex links had all that gold in them. Do they retain it when they get older? I've got a red sex link and she's getting less "red" by the day!

That looks like her about a week ago, Codybird. She is a pretty one and I don't care that she is not a Jersey Giant.

Thanks.

I have 6 BSL pullets and they run in color from almost total black to 1/2 gold and 1/2 black. All have some gold on the chest. As chicks they had a black head and black body. I could only see gold on one chick. I'm told the BSL roo's have a white spot on the head, hence sex-link. I'm surprised how good they look, since they looked like baby buzzards for awhile. They seem to get more gold as they age.

I can get a current ten week old pic if you want it.

It looks like my black sex link girls. one of my 2 girls has just a little bit of red on her chest and I am not sure that my other girl has a single feather on her that doesn't have some red on it . . . . .
