    Ok this is my last mystery chick out of the assorted rooster box what breed is he?
    he has one white tip feather on each wing other than that all yellow in color. My first guess was white plymouth rock but they said they did not order any white plymouth rocks. They thought it was either a buff orpington, light brahma or isa brown is it one of these? Jason

    I'm guessing it's either a leghorn, sexlink, or buff orpington.

    Quote:I agree, either leghorn or sex link. Doesn't look like a buff Orp. My bet is on sex link.

    I looked on the hatcheries website where they came from and they only carry black sex link. The only other chicks close to this they carry is california grey leghorn and the light brahma. So it must be the leghorn. Thanks for the answers.
