    I bought 3 chicks and was told they were buff orpingtons, but they look too red. I'm thinking red sex links. Do you think this is a gen? [​IMG][/IMG]. [​IMG]

    Thank you! I'm so new to this. I started out with 19 one day old chicks, 15 mixed breed and 4 porcelain d'uccle. Now I have 36 of different breeds, I'm a sucker when I see some for sale.
