    I called TSC three times today because they told me they were getting chicks in. Finally they got them and they got Barred Rocks. I got Hubby feed as fast as I could kids feed as soon as they got off the bus and in we went. Now see if I can get pictures posted.
    The yellow reddish ones they were calling Comets. Would Comets have racing stripes on their back? Only the one seems to have the red stripes.

    Yes, they are sexlinks, the reddish ones. Were the BRs straight run? If so, I think you have at least one cockerel in there, possibly.

    Yea the Barred Rocks are straight run. As far as the others I've read good about the Red Sexlink and the Comets so doesn't really matter there as long as they are pullets. Now I wait to see what I end up with from my incubator eggs.
