    This is my first real flock which I got when our baby chicks hatched in 1st grade at the elementary school where I work. All I was told is the farmer who donates the eggs to our district has a "mixed flock." Most are Rhode Island Reds, but I've been thinking all along I had one Buff Orpington until I saw a picture of a Gold Star/Sex Link today. Do you think Buffy is a Gold Star/ Sex Link? (Sorry her head is blurry.) She is 16 weeks old.

    I just love her almond shaped feathers.

    Thanks to y'all, I also found out one of my roosters is probably a red star/sex link. I was thinking he was a Leghorn the whole time he was growing up white.

    They do look like a female and male sex link.
