Mystery Chicks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Recieved my hatchery shipment today. Got all my ordered chicks but they threwin some extra that I cant identify. They are all yellow chicks except for a grey-black dot on their heads. Any one know the breed?

Can you post a photo?
If the dot is purplish then it is likely purple iodine spray used to mark them at the hatchery. In that case I would guess that they are probably male red sex links (unfortunately extra chicks are almost always male).
