    So the Ideal order that I was trying to figure out if I got what I ordered. .. here is the deal. I got the NHR's that I REALLY wanted
    I did not get the buff brahma's that I ordered but instead got Buff Rock's, I have 8 sex link "pullets" and two Barred Rock Roo's (aka peanuts)
    except...

    I think this is a roo

    and i have one of the barred rock's that is totally NOT anything like the other. What i mean is one is CLEARLY male and the other.... I am not sure.

    here is the one I know is a male:

    Top one looks like a red sex link pullet. All 3 of the barred rocks look like roos to me :[​IMG]

    Quote:eep top one "should" be gold sex link but out of 8, 7 of them look like that with the darker feather. Also, this one has a HUGE comb compared to the others.

    With the barred rocks (there are only 2) the last one has been whiter the whole time and looks less comby than the other.

    Thanks!!

    The darker of the BR's looks like it could be a female. It's got that dark wash down the front of its legs, and the black is darker than the other one.

    I've only had red sex-link males, and they looked nothing like that one. They were all white until after they were fully feathered, and then started developing a LITTLE red in their wings.
