Is this a Barred Rock chick, or a male Black Sex Link?

    We just bought this little one from a local Co-op. The person helping us said she was a Barred Rock that got put in the Black Sex Link bucket because she was the last BR left. I'm just wondering if the person working was right? This is our first time raising chickens =D.

    Thanks so much guys!! I called the Co-op just to check, and another worker said they only ordered in female black sex links so she's pretty sure it's a barred rock. Hopefully they're right! Can't wait to find out =D
