I have no idea what I bought

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

We picked up 6 chicks (one died) from Tractor Supply and we have no clue what they are bc the Tractor Supply guys weren't sure what they had. I have 2 Golden Sex Links and an Ameracauna as well. The guy said they were reds but.....um......they dont look like the reds I've seen.

 

 

Here they are the day we go them in their temporary home.  They do look a little reddish under the red light but not really when out in regular light.   They seem to be getting whiteish feathers now on their wings.

Possibly Red Sex Links. If you could get closer pictures that would be great!

 

Thanks!

They look like the ones (middle) I got that they called "isa brown" which is a red sex link. The others in this picture are RIR.

Here's one at about 7 weeks.
