    Hello! I was wondering if I could get any help with these chicks. They are around one month old and are supposedly Golden Sex-Links. The man at the feed store said that they were both girls, but I thought I'd check with you guys just to be sure. [​IMG]

    Here they are when I first got them.

    And here they are now.

    Both pullets. Males would be silver, your chicks are gold.

    What if I told you that they might be Buff Orpingtons...

    When I asked what breed they were the man at the feed store said that there were Golden Sex-Links in one bin and Buff Orpingtons in the other. Supposedly I got my chicks out of the Golden Sex-Link bin, but he might have gotten his bins mixed up. I'm not sure if I'm imagining it or not, but I'm suspicious because their combs might be turning red. Here are some current photos.

    I still think sex links.

    The new pics all look like mixed breed cockerels.
