Need help identifying breed and sex if possible

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I got three chicks from my local Rural King.  They were advertised as barred rock pullet.  One died after a week leaving me with two.  I was extremely paranoid another would die leaving me with one.  That fear did not materialize as they seem to be two healthy pullets.  My concern now is two-fold....one is not a barred rock and and may be a he (or maybe that fear is in my head).

 

First the non BR.  Based on some googling I think it may just be a black sex-link.  I was basing this on the brown in his chest. What do you guys think?  

 

 

 

 

Now for my BR.  Today I thought that comb started to look a little red.  This seems a little early for a hen since they are only two months.  I know sexing at this age is difficult.  Let me know if you guys need other photos or information.

 

Thanks.

I think you have two pullets and that you are right about the BSL.

Thanks for the responses.  I was just getting paranoid I had a roo which would be a no-no here.  Thanks....no I need to go finish that coop!!!

both pullets and one black sex link. They look similar in comb as my two around that age and I was concerned my br might not be so much a pullet, but she is.
