Hi, I have 6 week old ( roughly) chicks. We got them at ort local tractor supply and were told they were buff orpingtons, but I'm thinking they were mistaken. They were yellow as chicks but most are now turning red. any guesses??

Sex link BIG egg layen girls. Sometimes I've heard them called golden buffs; sex link is not the most indearing name.

So they are hopefully all pullets ( which is how they were advertised) since they are sex linked, right??

Yes, those are all red sex link pullets.  As noted above, they are sometimes sold under the name of "golden buff" - is there any chance that might have been the mix up?  If not, it is not uncommon for chicks to get mixed up at the retail store and end up in the wrong labeled tub or tote. 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

They were in a tub marked pullets. No breed was listed, so I asked. The young man said "I'm pretty sure they are buff orpingtons." Haha. I didn't really have a specific breed I wanted so I just went with it. Thanks for the feedback!!
