    I have 2 chicks (Chick #1 & 2 below) that have very prominent black/white markings as well as white spots of their heads. I have two other chicks (Chick #3 below) with similar black/white markings to the first 2, though they are much less prominent. Chick #4 is almost all black (only one of these). They are 3 weeks old. Amongst these chicks (all purchased from TSC), some were supposed to be Silver Laced Wyandottes and the others came from a groups of breeds which could include: Isa Brown, Rhode Island Red, Black Sex Link and Barred Rocks. I do not believe any of these are RIR. Chicks #1 and 2 look like barred rock chicks to me but could also be the Wyandottes? I have no idea really though and definitely no idea what Chicks #3 and 4 could be. Any ideas as to breed (or gender)?

    Thanks so far. BTW, Chick #1 we've named "Jumper" because it (he [​IMG]) is constanstly jumping on the other chicks, on top of the waterer, etc. Not sure if that confirms anything or not...

    Im thinking 1 and 2 are either barred rock or black sex link boys. The reason why I say black sex link is the black wash down the legs. Number 3 is barred rock girl. Number four black sex link girl.
