    I am sure they didn't mean to... but:

    They told me that they had only Black Sex Link and Delawares. This is what they are turning into!

    I am sure that the Delawares are Delwares but they are so cute I had to show off. I got two of these: Jacky and Bob

    There are also two "Black Sex Link" but they don't look like the pictures that I have seen of Sex Links (Stewie & Hen):

    Then there is this little girl (Leah) I assume that she is an EE from the green legs but are there different names for EE's? Are there different breens? How do I know for sure?

    Any ideas/info??

    Thanks!

    Yes - definitely barred rocks and Leah looks like our red sex links (except for the green legs!)

    sara Title Needed Here

    I believe that a black sex link it made from barred rock roosters over RIR hens, and that the sex linked babies look like a barred rock, pullets would be black.

    There are probably other crosses to make black sex links, but the above is the one I am aware of.

    your baby does look rooish with the red comb and wattles.

    here are my 2 barred rocks maybe you can compare them to yours

    this is my pullet Annabelle

    [​IMG]

    this is my marshmellow of a roo Maverick

    [​IMG]

    my BRs do not follow the normal color pattern for this breed - if you notice Annabelle is alittle lighter colored and Maverick is darker - normally it should be the other way around

    to me the one you have pictured is looking kinda rooish
