    Quote:The red suggests a Black Sex link. She should start laying soon.

    Quote:Probably not rare....but less common for sure. I have a mutt with black/purplish comb and wattles. Mom was a marans & dad an EEmutt (I think). Out of the 60 or so chickens that I have had past couple of years, she is the only one with the dark coloring like that. Not sure how genetics works or where it comes from.

    Dont know how well this pic helps, but my BSL when I got her at 17 weeks had a black comb and most of her face... it got red by 21 weeks or so. Now it has a huge red comb and is a good layer, although my meanest bird..

    RIR+BARRED ROCK = sexlink none have deep black face and legs

    Quote:The chicken wrangler there is cute but from his expression I would say he also knows that's the meanest bird in the flock.

    Is there a chance she has some Sumatra blood?
    They have the black comb and wattles but are lighter built
