    Do Speckled Sussex chicks come in Mostly Yellow? I thought they were all chipmunk colored. Well we got 4 Chipmunk and 2 yellow's I will post picks after we stop being mesmerized be them. (CAN'T STOP WATCHING CHICKS) in zombie voice. My little one had to have the yellow ones.

    No. Speckled Sussex chicks are red chipmunks.

    I don’t know where you got them. The yellow ones could possibly be Light Sussex or several other things, but they are not Speckled Sussex.

    Yay, we call it chicken TV, and you will continue watching even when they are adults. The yellow ones are not speckled sussex. You might want to call the place that you bought them from to figure out what they were (unless you already asked when you purchased them.)
    Yellow chicks can be a little harder to identify, but someone might know from the pic you post.

    Just got off the phone with someone who know what they are doing at TSC. Told me they were red sex link in wrong bin so I guess I got a deal. Plus I don't have to kill them and have my little one be sad. I still hope I get at least 1 pullet out of the 4 Speckled Sussex.

    TSC did not have any buff's so I am leaning toward the red sex link.
