    ok, the gold lacing(?) on the chest looks just like my other black sex-link, but....my other ones are much better looking!

    the heads are so different?

    any ideas on what the mix is?

    These look very much like Black Sex Links.

    my guess is both Black Star (black sex-link). I've got 5, and they all look different, with the amounts of gold lacing going from very little on Noisette to all gold down Golde's entire front. [​IMG]
