    As my title suggests, I realize these girls are still quite young, but I'm anxious so I'll start this thread now and if it is too early, I'll add pictures in a week or two to assist in the identification.

    They came from TSC. I assume the blacks are Black Sex Link, am I correct? Any clues with the lighter color two?

    The gold ones aren't red-sex links. There feathering looks white, is it? or is it just the lighting? I'm not sure about the black ones though.

    Do they have furry legs? They look kind of like our Buff Brahmas.

    Yes the feathers are coming in white possibly have a slight tan tint to them but that could indeed be from the red lamp. I read someone else say those two darker stripes down the back was indicative of sex links.

    If they have white and red feathers then they actually might be red sex links.

    I'm leaning towards them being Red Sex-links. Cute chicks!

    Thanks everyone for the input. Any idea about the black ones? Am I correct with them being sex link as well?
