So, I went to Co-op the other day and picked up two buff orpington, and two silver-laced wyandotte chicks. Afterwards, I went to Tractor Supply looking for barred rock chicks. The lady said they had a brooder of "mystery" chicks. She said the chicks came with their delivery, but there wasn't any information with them. She said they could be barred rock, silver laced wyandottes, or Australorps, but as I looked over to the brooder that said "black sex link" they looked almost exactly the same. So long story short, I broke down and bought six of the mystery chicks. I am hoping they are barred rocks, but I doubt it because they are lacking the yellow dot on their head that barred rock chicks have. They may be SLW but the SLW I already have dont have nearly the same amount of yellow feathers these chicks do. So all and all I am going to the conclusion that they are black sex links. I am really hoping they aren't because I don't find them to be a particularly visually appealing breed. I already have a view golden comets and don't care to have more sex link chickens. If anyone could help me by giving me some guesses as to what they might be, I would greatly appreciate it.
