    We got these chicks from tractor supply, the white one from the mixed pullets and the reddish one from the red pullets. They thought the reddish one was New Hampshire red but I think it may be the golden comet because the wing feathers are coming in white. The white one I am thinking Amberlink or Tetra Tint? Any suggestions on breed would be great. Thank you

    the yellow with white wings could be a Leghorn.

    The other I do not know.
    We just got chicks from TSC, too, and aren't familiar with all of them. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

    We just got chicks from TSC yesterday. I've been trying to figure out, myself, what breeds we ended up with out of the red pullet bin and from my research I'm pretty sure your red isn't a golden comet. They have chipmunk like stripes on their backs. Could be a production red, rir or new hampshire (to name a few). Sorry I couldn't be more help!

    Yellow is a White Rock. I read the list of chicks That the TSC had. The redish one could be a red star or new hamshire

    Heres my white rock from the pullet bin

    I got two birds from my local TSC's red pullet bin last year. They are now a year old:

    I'd guess Leghorn and either a RIR, NHR, or red sex-link. I doubt the one is a Golden Comet- mine looked different from both at that age.

    Thanks for the help. Does your white rock have a buff colored strip down the back and on the head?

    My guess would be a red sex-link (also called a golden comet or a red star).
