    I started our family's chicken venture with some chicks I got at TSC... the sign said "pullets" and "red pullets". I have 2 of the reds and 4 of the pullets.... so my question is what breed are they and what should I expect for laying times etc.... the gentleman told me they were about a week old when I got them on 3/3/12. I still do not have a permanent home for them... I am wanting to go as cost effective as I can but have no idea on design (can't there are some awesome ones here way to go ppl!) I've been scouting stuff to recycle but am not having any luck! Plus I will need something that will withstand our hit summers and cold winters. Any advise? I only have my smartphone so the only picture I have on here isn't the best. I will try to get some better ones tomorrow so people can help me out... I appreciate ANY info/advise! I've done a lot of research on here but you know how that goes especially with so much to grasp! I've also read Storey's guide to raising chickens. ~Shawna :)

    Id watch the one with All the white. Ive never raised red sex links but i heard the males come out all white and females come out red with some white. They all could be girls, i do see red on the mostly white one

    I have been trying to figure out which one you meant as all white... they all have red on them so now I'm paranoid that we'll have to name one "Stew" and well.... you know what that means :p!
