Hello all! I am new to this thing...I purchased 6 "red pullets" from TSC a couple weeks ago. These girls (at least that's what I keep telling myself) are all about 3 to 3 1/2 weeks old. I know there are at least two breeds here, based on coloring. I defer to the experts here for a little help on what breeds... I brought them outside for a few moments to get them some outside time while it was warm and sunny...they mostly just wanted to climb on me, but they'll get there.

Here's Kung-Pao:





Here's Piranha (named by my 6 year old boy):






I have yet to get good photos of the other girls (who all have more gender appropriate names). :) I will post more as I get them.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I think they are red sex-links, I too bought 6 mixed red pullets from TSC, and a couple of them looked like yours do now. I've attached some pics of them at 2 weeks, and a more recent pic at age 7weeks. They should start growing darker feathers by 3 weeks of age.

Yup, Red SLs. I personally love this hybrid. They are generally pretty tame, and lay eggs like it's a religion.
