    These are chicks from the famous TSC bin. Started out as chipmunks and now they look like pinecones. I can't find any pics of juvenile brown leghorns, so maybe ya'll could help, please. They are 4 weeks old. The black sex link and the white (leghorns, rocks?) are 5 weeks old.

    Are their legs yellow or white? If white, you may have some Speckled Sussex. My brown leghorn never had that much white on her underside.

    Here's a pic. Pinkish Whitish? I'd have to say not yellow.

    You're right - not yellow - lucky you if they turn out to be Speckled Sussex - they're on my wish list!! Were they in a pullet bin or did you buy straight run?

    They are not brown leghorns! I have some 7 weeks old and this is what they look like.

    They were in the pullet bin, so hopefully all are pullets! Can you tell me about the sussex? These seem to be pretty shy, but they have gotten braver in the past couple of days.
