    Hi! Wondering if anyone could tell me what breed/sex my black and white chicks might be? They are almost 2 weeks old! I know the others are golden sex-links and they are female.

    Welcome to BYC. The chicks look as if they MIGHT be Australorps.

    Welcome. When you chicks are 6 weeks old or so, you may want to post photos at "what breed or gender is this." Two weeks of age is much too soon to know much more than

    the are very cute.

    Thank you all! It's been an adventure so far and I love my feathered friends! Sourland, thanks. I was thinking that or possibly black sex links maybe? Don't know if Australorps are sex links? I'm just too anxious to know what all I have! We had 5 cornish rocks as well, but we lost 3 of them. The other 2 are doing great now that they are seperated. Didn't know you can't house the in the same brooding area as the others because of overheating. And we have 4 hens that I thought for sure were Welsummers but they are laying off white eggs. Still pullets though, they started laying about 3 weeks ago.
