4 week old chicks.  Was told the black one is a black sex linked pullet.  Have no idea what the other dark colored one is.  Thoughts on both chicks?  Bought them at a feed store and all are supposed to be pullets, but I know I have one roo that is one of my  Delawares

 

.

Breed and sex for both?

Breed and sex for the 2 darker chicks?

Breed and sex?  The tail to the Left of the photo is the other supposed Black sex link I have.  Both are supposed to be pullets, but this one has a larger comb and shorter tail.  Does that mean its a roo?  Are they even black sex links or something else?

Breed?  Sex?

Well the one with gold flecks is a Golden Laced Wyandotte!  Don't panic when/if that one starts to turn pink in the comb around 4-5 weeks.  My pullets did that.  GLW are harder to determine the sex early on.  You'll know whether is a pullet or cockerel by 12 weeks.

Black Australorp cockerel

Golden Laced Wyandotte and nothing screaming cockerel, but it's too young to be for sure

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
