My new chicks

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!

One of the Barred Rocks and maybe the 2 Black Sex Links

Both Barred Rocks

The Araucana? And one of the Sex Links.

I'm pretty sure all 14 are in this last pic.
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!
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.
