    I got 8 chicks today from TSC, does anyone know what these are? I don't know if they are RIRs, Red Stars, or what.

    As a "New Egg," you're not allowed to post pictures yet. I know because I'm a New Egg too and asked the exact same question you did a couple of weeks ago. I bought 6 red pullets from TSC just before St. Patrick's Day and they all turned out to be RIR's.

    wow seams like were all in the same tsc boat... my two girls are coming in a beautiful red head and shoulders but their wings back are a really pretty soft, not cream but almost cream? any ideas then my black girls are coming in barred still cant figure them out. and I have one that is not any of the above that is black barred but she has white around her eyes and by her ears? any ideas. the only ones I Am sure about is the dark bhramas. their look just like their supposed to. I cant wait to see what they develop into. i really want to become somewhat a self sustainable farm ( 22 ac) in upstate Sc. but I tell ya more than anything these 10 little pullets lower my blood pressure faster than any med ever did, thats for sure. I really enjoy them. no matter what they turn out to be. I do know what in the future I'll order my chicks... I would really like a trio of Ameracuana's

    The reds I got from our local TSC are Golden Comets. At least, according to the small sticker on the inside of the tank, and they certainly look like the pictures I found of GCs.

    The reds I got from my TSC ended up being: Rhode Island Reds, Golden Comets, and Red Shavers.

    I have 6 red pullets from TSC, too. Actually, I didn't buy them. My friend wanted to experience chicks but didn't want chickens. I think they are about 7 weeks old (I need to ask again). She says they guaranteed all females, which makes me think they are sex links. I guess we'll see. I'll have to post pics once I have a high enough post count because I know I don't have the expertise to figure it out.
