    Sorry the uploads and this old post's content have been removed to make room in my uploads page (wouldn't make since without pictures huh?) The chicks have been re-homed and are very happy. Thanks to all who replied!

    I don't have barred rock or black sex links so I will not comment on the specific chicks. With the choices you listed, the black ones with the spots on their heads are either barred rock or black sex link males.

    The way you tell the difference between a black sex link male and female is that the black sex link male has a white spot on its head. The black sex link female does not. All barred rock have a white spot on the head.
