I have figured out what all my chicks are, except these...I have two of each coloring.

They are in one bin together at the feed store (TSC) and I think they came from Mt. Healthy. The guy said they are both the same breed and that he thought they were labeled sex links when they came.

This chick does not have any white spotting on its head at all, it's solid black. So is the other chick I have of this kind, no white spot on it either, but the second chick has all yellow legs with no black coloring.


And I have two of these:

On the Mt. Healthy site they have something called Black Sex Link-Red Rock cross. I read that the males resembled Barred Rocks and the females are black and red. Could that be what these are? What do you think?

At least the second one is a pullet! I have two of them. (I have horrible luck, I always end up with a zillion roos lol.)

The first one does kind of look like a Minorca. I certainly wouldn't be disappointed! It doesn't have any white on the chest like the chicks in the picture though, so I'm not 100% sure...

Those are the crosses Mt. Healthy sells that I think might be what these two chicks are.
