    The first looks like a Brown Leghorn pullet or possibly a Welsummer with poor body type. The second is a Black Sex Link pullet. :)

    Since it appears to be a Black Sex Link, there is no need to worry about gender. They are sexable at hatch and the males of the cross look very different. They a are barred with colored leakage instead of black with red or orange on their chest. :)

    Thankyou, I'm not as lost as Las year ,which was my first, but the barred rock imposter through me. I thought it looked like my BSL but I don't remember her cone being that prominent at 6 weeks or the waddle so soon. She has much more orange on her chest also. Feel much better w you confirmation. Thanks again for your prompt input.
