    Too much black for a Welsummer.

    And too much gold for a sex link. Could be a mix. :) Very pretty though!

    The amount of gold a black sexlink exhibits is highly variable.

    junebug..you are right! I looked them up. Sorry, I was just going by what my girls have had. I like that much gold on them. Very pretty.

    To me the chicken looks a lot like my Olive Egger. Which I believe is a Welsummer cross. I'm just not really sure what mine is crossed with. Welsummer/black Ameraucana perhaps to result in green eggs. I can't get a picture to load from my computer today otherwise I would add one for comparison.
