    I got a batch of mail order chicks today. They sent about 8 extra chicks for warmth. I am not sure what breed they are. Could you please tell me? [​IMG]

    I'm guessing male black sex-link. Anyone else? Do all the extras look like this?

    Yes they all look like that. I thought sex-link at first, but it has too much white underneath.
