    Aw, what a cutie patootie! She's definitely a red sex-link. You're going to really love her. She'll lay gangbusters for you once she gets old enough, and she should be a pretty mellow chick. [​IMG]

    This is the second breed (out of five breeds) I received that was not in the advertised list of possibilities. You are probably thinking how dumb I am but Red Sex Link was NOT in the list and not knowing anything about chickens, it was the closest in color to the pictures of a buff orpington. [​IMG] I think shippers should include a packing slip with names of the breeds they are sending.

    I am happy that they are not roosters. Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply. Since I started on my first chicken project in February, this Forum has been my Bible for information.

    I've had people ask if they could get eggs without chicks in them. [​IMG]
