    Black comb and waddles!?

    •Came from Tractor Supply in Greenwood Ar, 2016
    •Black with gold heavy in the neck and lightly scattered on the chest and wings
    •Black feathers are super green in the sunlight
    •One has a bright red comb, the other has black skin everywhere
    •Laid their first egg today and it's a reddish-maroonish color, almost resembles a cherry egger egg but lighter in color
    •Feathers on the back come together and make a mokawk

    Kinda sounds like black sex link, but not much has a black comb and wattles, especially that you'd get at TSC

    Either a black sex link, or an Austrolorp with poor genetics.

    Just got these pictures. Their tails are low because it was sprinkling outside, but when they hold their tails upright their feathers on their backs come to a point and it looks like a Mohawk. These pictures don't do them justice, they are so pretty and so green.

    Black Sex-links--except the black skin is puzzling me.
