    Whoever has them, can you post pictures of your Sex Links (black or red, boy or girl, please specify tho) around the 6-8 week age? I'm trying to figure out what kind of chickens I have, and I haven't been able to find any pictures to compare. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!

    What I was told is that they were Barred Rocks, but when I first saw them I knew they weren't. I took them anyway. The guy I got them from then contacted me and said that he was mistaken. He was told they were BR, but he was told later by someone else that they were Sex Links. They just don't seem like SL to me, though. One of them does, but the rest are mystery chicks. Five of them are brown/black, with some orange feathers on their back, neck, and chest. Some have quite a bit of orange, and some have just a bit. Some have light feet, some have black feet. I can't figure out what they are. They don't look like any adult SL that I have seen so far, so that's why I wanted to see pics of young ones. I'm still confused.

    Here is one

    I *think* my sex links were around 6 weeks old in this picture. They're the reddish/gold ones; the others are Easter Eggers.

    They could be BSL though I've never had them. But they will molt out these feathers and get some pretty interesting ones later. I thought I was going to get reddish white chickens but I have a gold one! This is her; she could be the one in the rightish-middle (on the last picture) or the one on the bottom right. Hard to tell in that pic. In this bottom picture, you could barely see my other sex link...she's a lot darker red and has more black markings.
