    They look like they could be black sexlink pullets, but with a silver based rooster instead of the typical red based rooster.

    I got her out of a "Black layers" bin from TSC. She was supposed to be either a Black Australorp, Jersey Giant, Black Sex link, or Barred rock but knowing TSC I wasn't surprised when she wasn't. She is one of the nicest in my flock and very curious :).

    these are Easter eggers. If a person is selling any pure bred bird, they'll be able to give you the correct name of the color variety. These birds are Easter egger colored [​IMG]
