    I happened to stop by TSS when they got a new delivery of chicks in.
    I grabbed 3 Barred Rocks and then they opened another box with what was marked Red CRS.
    Only 3 out of 100 had black markings. I grabbed them because I was curious.
    They did not look like any other chick in the shipping box! [​IMG]
    One has a black spot on its head only!

    Any ideas what they might be?

    Do you know if they get their chicks from Mt. Healthy? MtH has a red sex link they just call Red Cross Chicken, could be abbreviated that way, the few odd colors might depend on what they used as the columbian colored mother, maybe something that was a mix?

    They did not tell me what Hatchery they got the chicks from :(
    Let's say you are right :)
    Will they look different from the Red Sex Links I already have in my flock?
