    I ordered chicks from McMurray, they arrived yesterday, cute little boogers. Anyway, the hatchery tossed in some extra chicks for warmth in the box, but I have no idea what they are. Not knowing is making me crazy! All the extras are yellow, and I think most are white leghorns, but two are different from the others. They have marks on their backs. Plain yellow/orange legs, no leg feathers. Any idea what they might be? Are they also leghorns or maybe Americaunas? Something else? Thanks!

    As extras, they're probably males. They could be the male red sex link (red star), which grows up to be white with some red/gold in the hackles, etc.

    A nice healthy size chick you have there, that's for sure.
