    Ok so I wanted to hatch some chicks in the bator. So I used some eggs out of my coupe to see if it was working before investing in eggs and loosing alot of money. I have 2 sex link hens, 3 Barred rock hens and one RIR hen. We collected some eggs dont know whose they were. 2 chicks hatched today (one never made it out of the egg all the way after piping 1 wasnt fertile and 2 will killed in the ok is this working I dont see anything on candleing at 7 days). Oh the roo was a Barred Rock. So I dont know how this happened. They say you cant get a black sex link but it looks like one is a black sex link roo and the other chick is white? HUH I am lost lol. So who do they belong to? Gonna find the camera and take pics but didnt think I could get a white chick? Also wasnt expecting one that looks like a black sex link roo through and through..

    The black chick is a barred chick. All barred rocks look just like that chick of yours when hatched.
