    We got some chicks from the feed store yesterday and there were a couple dark brownish red chicks in with the black sex links. They had just gotten the chicks in and there were no other chicks that looked like them so I don't think they got put in the wrong bin. We bought one so we could see what it looks like as it grows. Can black sex link chicks be brown?

    This is the chick we got.
