    I got mine from TSC too. They are Amber sexlink which is a cross between RIR (the dad) and White Leghorn (the mom). I bought three and all three are thriving. When they feather out, no two look exactly the same. At least mine don't. We have Amber, Omelette, and Poachy. For being egg layers they are pretty affectionate and love to be held and snuggled. Poachy is about the sweetest little thing ever. She feathered out first. Amber and Omelette both still look pretty homely. When I went for pullets they were sold out, so i had to get straight run. So either I have two hens and a roo, or I have two roo's and a hen. I like them and if they turn out to be good layers I will go back next year and get a few more.
