    My guess is Black sex link or Astralorpe cross, sorry about the spelling........ but she looks alot like my BLSL girls, they have a bit of reddish brown feathering on the neck except Daphne who has alot, but they cam from TSC same hatch.....so maybe that's normal diversity in the blsl???? I would guess astra, except the legs are alot of yellow and the body type doesn't seem to have the right frame?? She seems very young yet how old is she?

    I think it's a Jersey Giant pullet. JG have yellow feet, Australorps have pink. Otherwise, they essentially look the same. The color of their feet is the easiest way to tell them apart.

    Oh I should have included more info...

    I think they are around 7 weeks old. We got 4 that look similar to this one. But, 2 have the yellow feet and 2 have the pinkish-white feet. I'm pretty sure that the 2 with the pinkish-white are Black Australorps, but wasn't sure if this one was too or a JG?

    At 7 weeks... Well, it's probably a cockerel then... But still a JG.

    Great, I was hoping for an Aussie chick and ended up with a Giant cock(jersey to boot).
