    So I had a moment of weakness a few days ago and picked up these un-labeled chicks from TSC. I know they get their birds from Privett, and did a search and have narrowed them down to a barred breed. Privetts order list online has alot of barred breeds to chose from. Cochins are eliminated due to lack of feathered feet, and I eliminated Dominique because these look like they'll have regular single combs. That leaves Barred Rock, Cuckoo Maran, Barred Leghorn, and California Gray. Those last two are hard to find chick-pics of, but from what I can find I can't tell the difference between them at all. I'm kinda crossing my fingers for Cuckoo Marans.
    What do ya'll think???

    I see white spots on some of the heads which may signify sexable at birth. These chicks look very much like a breed I have once owned. I want to say black sex links but can't confirm that guess. Possibly barred rocks?

    I have a golden Cuckoo Maran and she looks a little different from them. They have a lot of white for a Cuckoo Maran. I would most likely guess barred rock or a mix of some sort. If you'd like I can post a pic of my Cuckoo Maran chick, she's two weeks old almost if it'll be helpful :)

    TSC usually carries more than one type of chick for sure! Are you sure these came from Privett hatchery? They only breed California greys and the chicks look exactly like your picture!

    Thatcher, AZ. We're only one state away from NM so most feed stores in this state order from Privett. I know the TSC and the Safford Feed order from Privett, and Curtis Landscaping in Safford orders from McMurray. I've asked.

    Unless you have a newer list than I do. The 2016 pdf list I have that I used to order directly from them lists in order of price: Barred Rocks, Barred Leghorns, California Greys, Dominiques, and Cuckoo Marans. They had their new website up for a short while but it's been down for a couple weeks, I haven't been able to get it to come up.

    The TSC did have some sexlinks but they were in a different bin. These birds were in a bin mixed in with Barnevelders, but only had the Barnevelder sign up.

    I only asked because I tagged someone who works for TSC and this person has been helping other people with basically your same "problem" figure out the breeds.
