    Anyone want to help me identify breed and gender?

    We got these at Atwoods around the end of June, so they are approx. 2-3 months old I'm guessing. They were in a bin marked assort. pullets. However, we all know that sexing chicks are not always 100%. We THOUGHT they were black sex links, but they have WAY more gold on them than our other BSL we have that are adults. So now we are questioning what are these things? lol

    They are black sex links. There's a huge variation in the gold that comes through. Some just have a touch at the throat, some like your ladies are basically half and half.

    x 2 donrae but seems funny to still call them black sex links, when it's hard to find some black. Not easy being a new chicken owner
