    So the father of this chick is a black ameraucana and the mama is a light brahma. It does have a little white on its stomach and under its beak. I know the white spot is on the forehead but could it just be under the chin by chance?

    Sorry, but no.

    A Black Sexlink is made with a non-barred and non-white rooster crossed over barred hens.

    But your Light Brahma hen is silver, so you could make Red Sexlinks with her if you were to cross her with a red or gold rooster (such as RIR, NH, BO, GLW, SS, PR, DC, etc.).

    And you could make Black Sexlinks with your Black Ameraucana rooster (assuming he's an Ameraucana, not an EE) by crossing him with barred or cuckoo hens (such as BR, CM, Dominique, etc.).
