    Atwoods had straight run chicks for 1.99 with a 1.99 online rebate up to 6 chicks. I decided to roll the dice and hope for a few pullets. I just asked the guy to give me some with skinny legs. Any opinions on breed or gender? Purchased today. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The format changed on me after posting. There are 5 different chicks shown. There is one more, but my phone died while taking pics.

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses.

    Thanks to both of you! I was pretty sure about the red sex-links/production reds, but wasn't sure about the black chicks or the yellow one. Thanks again!

    Here are updated pictures at 2 weeks. 2 pics of each. Any new opinions? The one with barring (previously ID's as barred rock) has pretty long tail feathers, as does the reddest one (RIR?). Doesn't seem to have really distinct bar patterns and has black down the legs to the feet . Could I be right in hoping for girls? Any more info on the other black one now? The yellow one is the smallest at this point and has fine fringes of the tips of the feathers. I'm assuming boy on that one. They are enjoying their introduction to grass and bugs!!! Thanks for any help

    Thanks 21 hens! That seems too good to be true from the straight run bin, but I wouldn't mind a roo, since ours was just lost to stray dogs.
