    I got six chicks from a neighbor who could no longer take care of them. He got them at Tractor Supply but can't remember when or what breed they are. Any guesses would be appreciated.

    The fuzz still on the neck/head would put them at around 5 weeks of age give or take.

    I agree. She's about as feathered out as my 5 weekers. She looks identical to my golden sex links, but she's almost "frizzled" looking, not smooth. And I don't think sex links are frizzled. So I'm stumped on the breed.

    Ok, thanks. I called TS when I got them (on 4/17) and was told they had RI Reds, NH Reds and Bantams on that day. But they didn't know if they were selling anything different before that when these chicks would have been purchased.
