    I bought 6 chicks from Tractor Supply 2 weeks ago, so they are about 3 weeks old, but completely forgot to ask what breed they are. On the box all it says is 'Pullets' with a picture of a white chicken and a black and white spotted chicken. Please help! Thanks!

    Photos of your actual chicks will be necessary.

    All feed stores put chicks in a standard take home box that has some pictures of standard chickens but is not intended to be breed identification....if I understand what you mean.

    Maybe production Reds of gold sex link of some variety? You may have to wait until they are older to really tell.

    Your photos are all showing now :D

    I agree they look to be Red Sexlinks or Production Reds.

    if they are Red Sexlinks, they will be pullets, 100% certain, as the chicks are actually color coded by gender...females being reddish-gold while males are pale yellow.

    Because I am seeing some striping in a few, those may be Production Reds, which will have been vent sexed at the hatchery with a 90 to 95% certainty, so you could get a rooster (or two if your luck is lousy), but chances are you got girls.

    You'll know in a few weeks.

    Either one will lay a prolific amount of eggs.
