Help me identify my chicks please!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
We went to tractor Supply today to get our first chicks (yay!). Anyway, I wanted a bit of variety so I know we got 2 each of the sex links, welsummers and Rhode island reds. But I don't know how to tell the difference since we got them home. Any help is appreciated.[IMG].

I seriously barely know anything.  But, mine- that look like RIR- look like your dark striped ones.

.

I suspected the darkest ones of being RIR because I vaguely remember having some when we were kids. But wasn't sure. Hoping for more confirmation on it 😊

The lightest color chicks are your sex-links, the ones with the dark stripes are your welsummers, and the ones with dark orange backs are the RIRs

I have two that look like the sex link. Their feathers on their wing are coming in white. Does that sound right or are they something else?

This is correct.

My animals were stolen by a family member and rehomed without my knowledge or consent. I was away for the weekend and they were supposed to be caring for them for me. I have no idea where any of them are at this point.

Could be. My sex links have white wing feathers and are red over their shoulders, head, and partway down their backs.
