    Looks just like my black sex-link. Black all over, but little bit of reddish gold at the neck/chest, greenish sheen to the black, greyish/yellowish legs.

    I guess black sex-links and I don't think they're as old as that, at 4.5-5 months old they'd be point of lay and getting bigger, red combs. I'm guessing more like three months?
