    Aaaand now that we have identified my impulse-purchase Amberlinks (hey, can't beat $.25 for sexed pullets!), I give you these guys: a friend and I offered to split and give homes to these chicks after a co-worker went to TSC and bought 8, and about a week later realized that having chickens is actual work... The co-worker didn't pay attention to what they were, just thought they were "cute".:barnie

    Now that we are mostly past the mangy-looking stage, I'm pretty sure they are Rhode Island Reds?

    They, it looks like a Rhode island red, the middle photo looks like a rooster, though, I think all photos are of one chick? A better side picture of the comb would help, is it pink?

    From TSC they will be Production Reds rather than true RIR's.

    And yes, I think the middle on is a rooster too. They telecast early.

    Great layers, though a bit noisy. Roosters can be a bit aggressive.
