So I am pretty sure I ended up with a rooster with my purchase of pullets at TSC. But I am not really sure what breed he is either.


Then I start getting scared this one might be a roo too.


and I think this girl might be a Black Star, shes the only one I think I have figured out!


here is a picture of them together. TSC said they were a week old when I bought them, which would put them at 12 weeks. They look huge to me, but then again, I am a noob. HELP!


the first picture of the roo was taken today, the rest are a bit older ( couple of weeks ago)
The first one is a red sex link rooster. Shouldn't have been in the pullet bin since they are sexed by color. The red one looks like it may also be a cockerel (the reason I say that are the very shiny wing and saddle feathers I'm seeing that look rooster-y, but can't see that area well enough to be certain), but the black one is a black sex link pullet. How old are they?
I bought them on March 12 and they were in the pullet bins and said 1 week old. That would make them like 12 weeks, but I just bought 2 pullets from a lady that hatched them that are 14 weeks and they are a ton smaller than my 3 I started with.

The shiny feathers on the red one had me suspicious as well
Lord knows I'm not buying from TSC again. ugh

Agree with the others, roo, roo, pullet, though the second is on the fence for me. Mostly I was writing to totally second your 'not buying from TSC again' because yeah, they totally don't know a thing! When I got nine from them, I wanted 4 Ancona's and 4 EE's (they threw one in for free). I knew that wasn't what I was getting because they had a picture of what the Ancona chicks were suppose to look like and NONE of the chicks looked like that. I ended up with 5 EE's, a Cochin, and what I am pretty sure is a black sex link female, and still unsure if the others are Barred Rocks or black sexlink boys. I guess if I do go there again, I will be prepared and only grab what I KNOW is what it is suppose to be!
