    I just added a black sex-link and haven't seen one full grown. Currently she looks a little bit like a crow with silver lacing on her chest. Does anyone have pics of their hens? Thanks so much for the inquiry!

    Ours are 18 weeks old and just starting to lay. They were very ugly as chicks, but are pretty now (they are 16-17 weeks old in photos).

    We have one that is almost all black,

    another that has brown on her chest and brown flecks on her wings,

    and the last one has gold feathers around her neck & chest.

    All 3:
