    Got these chicks from TSC. The 3 darker ones all came from the red pullets tub and the 2 lightest ones and the buff came from the assorted pullets.

    The 3 dark ones basically are identical. 1 lighter one has a darker head and the buff is solid.

    They are right at 3 weeks now.

    Any thoughts on what breeds? Thanks!

    All standards, no leg feathers.

    I was fairly confident (and agree) on the buff, white rock and 3 red sex links. The one odd ball had me hesitant to even guess....

    The one looking at the camera is the bottom right corner in the 2nd pic also...

    Thanks for the quick replies!
