    The feed store clerk where I got these told me they were BOs. They had a nice yellow color as babies, though with some white.

    At two weeks, though, they are starting to look different (the one's with white in them).

    About 12 weeks. The one's in question are the one's with the dirty white in them.

    The red with white tails are red sex links and the black could be black sex links. these are egg laying chickens and a make good hens.

    It does look that the red ones rsl's and the blacks are bsl's. That turned out good! Some of the best layers!

    Yeah they have been great layers - they lay huge eggs! They are my favorite personality-wise, too.
