Hey! I'm new here and new to raising chicks! I received 3 Black Sex Links, along with 2 other breeds from Tractor Supply. However, I noticed one of the sex links doesn't quite look like her sisters. While the 2 black sex links have black with red coming through with dark feet, Gabriella, the unique one, is black with white and pinkish feet along with yellowish white around her eyes.

I looked online and I am thinking maybe barred rock. But it's hard to tell. I believe she is a week to 2 weeks old. Maybe a barred rock got into the black sex link brooder? Anyway, you can see the pictures and tell me what you think!

Thanks so much for your time responding!

PS. Their brooder is a large rabbit cage with a brooder plate. But I have one side covered with cardboard by the plate to keep in warmth and made a shelf for the top of the plate. All suggestions from BYC forums! Tried to take well enough pictures lol.
