    I think I have two of these in my mixed bag from McMurray. 3 weeks old tomorrow. Any guesses?

    So since this was a yellow chick, the guess would be boy red-sex link? McMurray carries Red Stars, which this could be?

    Looks like a Red Sex-link pullet to me.

    Oh...uh oh...I only have two of these but five solid yellow ones which I thought were white leghorns....wondering now if they're just male red-sex link.
    I swear, I'm doomed to have 90% Roos!!!!

    Not all white chicks are male or even the same breed as there are several breeds that can come in white.

    They could be. They might also be White Leghorns or White Plymouth Rocks. You'll know for sure when they get older. Red Sex-Link males get some red on their wings usually, while the other two breeds I listed stay pure white.
