    I am new to chickens, and got a some at a local Atwoods. The clerk I got them from knew less than I do about chickens, and just grabbed some. I believe they are all hens, except for one. Can you help?
    These are my 4 weekers.

    The top black ones look like black sex link the red one looks like a production red the little ones look like 2 red sex link a buff orphington and the little chipmunk one looks like my brown leghorn chick did.

    I think you're probably right on the sex-linked ones, but buff orpington? How can you tell? The new feathers sure look pure white to me?[​IMG]

    Second to the bottom looks like my BO chicks, too. But I'm no expert! And the one on the bottom looks like my EEs did.

    Anyone else wanna take a guess? Looking back at the baby pics of my roo, he sure looks a lot like the little red 1 weeker. How do you tell the difference between a production red and red sex-links?
