    I received all my pullets chicks (10) on March 3rd from Ideal and they have been doing great. I noticed they all have started growing little tails except these two.......are they just slow growers?

    Are these golden or red sex-links? I ordered one of each....

    Golden Sex-Link?

    Red Sex-Link?

    No, they are not. Red sex links chicks will have 2 orange stripes down their back.

    I bought some from TSC that look almost identical to yours and they also seem to be a bit behind my other chicks. Wish I could tell you what they are, but they were in the "red pullets" bin so they could be anything. [​IMG] As long as they really are pullets I'm happy! [​IMG]
    Good luck!
