    This hen is red and black with a blue sheen on tail feathers. I know it's a wyandotte but cant find the same coloring to find her exact breed. Hens hatch date is March 18th, making her almost 2 months old. 20180515_165054.jpg 20180515_165039.jpg 20180515_165501.jpg

    Was she from a hatchery or feed store? If so she could be a black sex link.

    She could be part Wyandotte, but definitely is a mixed breed. She has a single comb, and isn't a standard color.

    She's not a Wyandotte. She looks like a black sex link to me.

    Thank yall for yalls comments! I got her from Tractor supply as a chick and the lady told me she was a silver laced wyandotte. But that's obviously not correct.

    Do you have a pic of her as a chick?
    At least she's a 'she'!
