    I'm curious what breed this young lady is. When I bought her as a day old chick I thought she was a golden laced wyandotte but I'm pretty sure she's not.

    Any thoughts?

    My guess would be Black Sex Link as well, but she is the most beautiful one I have ever seen.

    Really? I have two adult black sex links and they were always all black. This one was brown/tan as a chick. I would be happy to have another as they are wonderful birds.

    Thanks for your input!

    yep it's a black sex link. Sex links are a first generation mixed bird and come from different combinations. Your all black ones might be from a different cross then this one, but this one is still a very typical colored.

    Black Sex Link hen.

    Gold Laced Wyandottes have a flat comb, and each feather should be golden brown with a black edge laced all around it. Together the bird would look black with ittle brown polka-dots.

    She is a very pretty bird. The reddish color on her front is pretty typical of a black sex link.
