    Well, I have my 14 chicks now and the last 5 I got at a feed store where they were all mixed and no one was really helping sort them. I was told there were Black Sex Links (is that even a breed, or just that they were bred to be easy to sex as chicks?), Araucanas, Delawares and then in the 3-week olds there were Barred Rocks and RIRs. I got two 3-week old Barred Rocks, and out of the day-olds I got 2 Black Sex Links and, I think, an Araucana. Anyone wanna take a look at these pics and see if it looks like that's what I got? They are in with my previous nine chicks (6 days old now) which are 5 Buff Orps, 2 Black Australorps and 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes. Thanks for looking!

    I'm pretty sure all 14 are in this last pic. [​IMG]

    Sorry the pics are not that great. I took them with my phone instead of my camera because it was faster to upload, but now I wish they were better pictures! I think the first pic I said had the 2 sex links in it may be one of the sex links and one of my Australorps... hard to tell from the angle- but I don't think the sex links have that light color coming around the sides of the head. Oops. I can tell them apart in person, I swear! [​IMG]

    the 'araucana' is a EE, I don't know of a hatchery that sells real Araucanas. Other than that I think you're right! the BSLs look just like mine did, and so does the EE. I don't know much about Delawares, though, so I can't help you there.
