Black Sex Link pullet has awfully green sheen on

kumquat1July 11, 2009

feathers. Reddish brown feathers on head, neck and down the breast, but the black feathers on the back have a green sheen, and the tail feathers are taking a curvature downward and awfully green. Are we going to have dumplings after feeding this "girl" for 3 months?

Black Sex Link males feather out in a Barred Rock pattern, so you likely have a hen. :) Those 'black' feathers can have a lot of that lovely green/violet sheen to them. Check out feathersite.com for their page on Sex Link birds for more info and lots of pictures, there is a pullet pictured there that sounds just like yours:
