Can any identify these chicks

post #1 of 5

Got chicks from a hatchery and they added these in here to keep the other guys warm. Can anyone tell me what they are

Roosters. Probably sex links or leghorn.

So you think all of them are roosters? And I figured they would do that instead of mixing hens in there

Odds are they are all roosters. They could sell the females. If they are white leghorn a girl could of slipped in but a sex link no way. Sex link cockerel are an obvious choice for free warmth chicks because they aren't going to accidentally give you extra pullets.

Yep, probably cockerels.... I believe those are affectionately known as "packing peanuts" lol wink.png

Which Hatchery did you use?
