    Just got my first flock and they are a week old today, when I bought them last week I was told 4 of my chicks were white Leghorns but 2 of them look like this. Are they leghorns or cross or what and was wondering how to tell if they're male or female I got straight run hoping for more females and maybe one rooster but I've looked at wing sexing but I don't know if they're to old to distinguish that? Can someone help with this?

    The ones with red on their wings appear to be Red Sex-link pullets. The white chicks may be White Leghorns or White Rocks, or male Red Sex-links.

    I know when I got them 2 white and 2 brown winged ones said they were white leghorns and the other 2 were Rhode island whites so I have 4 white leghorns and 2 riwhites and the ones with black brown and white feathers were with the white leghorns. That's y I'm confused...

    Do they sometimes get mixed up in shipping or something, cause the two also have feathers on their feet?

    The two with the feathered feet and single combs appear to be Cochin chicks.
