    You cant really tell in this picture but she has a little bit of copper pinning going on, on her chest her feathers have a greenish and purupleish sheen to them in the sunlight though

    I'd love to see a better pic or description of its comb. Is that a V comb I see? Or a pea comb? That would really help. [​IMG]

    Looks like a black sex-link to me.

    When she gets close to laying her comb will turn bright red.

    24 weeks? . . . . Well then she's not a Sex Link. I seriously think that's a V comb I see there. . . She might be a La Fleche cross or a Polish cross.

    She looks exactly like my Black Stars. Most BSL begin laying pretty early, some as early as 16 weeks, so I think the fact that she's 24 weeks and not laying is a bit unusual.
