    This pullet is about 8 weeks old and she is just beautiful! We have not had one like this yet in our cross breeding program so I'm not sure who the mom is but would love to know.

    She is the white one.

    Here are our list of hens that could be the mothers:

    Buff Orpington
    Turken (although she doesn't have a naked neck like my other Turken hatchlings)
    Rhode Island Red
    Black Sex Link



    What do you all think???

    Prob. the sexlink. The bl sexlink is a barred rock/RIR mix. And this beauty looks like she has some BR in her

    That would be my guess too, though she looks more like she has silver pencilling than barring.

    It might be a little hard to tell, but the darker color isn't black. It's more of a dark gray. I don't know if that makes a difference. Just giving info! : - )
