    I've had my eleven girls about three months now. Got them as chicks from tractor supply. Thought they were Rhide Island Reds. They are a light reddish with patches of white. They love to eat! I enjoy giving them different foods to try. Can't wait for eggs!

    Sounds as if they are red sex links of some sort. Local TSC misidentified nearly every batch of chicks they received. Welcome to BYC.

    I agree with Sourland. To be certain you could post photos here or at " what breed or gender is this."
