    New here and to raising chickens. I have 4 chicks: 1 buff orph, 1 black link, and 2 Banty. Curious as to what are the speckled one and the light yellow one in terms of breed and gender.

    The black sex link is the pure black one. Since you bought it as a sex link, it will be female.

    As for the others, it is too early to tell the gender.

    The Buff orp will be one of the two pure yellow chicks, probably the lighter one.

    The other two will be your bantams.
    Where did you buy them from?
    Do either have feathered feet?

    No feathered feet. The buff orph is darker yellow and was in a pullet bin. We bought them at the barn trading company (feed/flower store). The light yellow and speckled one were in the bantum straight run bin. The specked one is mine and the others are my kids. I am curious to what mine will look like as an adult.

    It's too early to know what they will look like when the are adults.
