Here are the 6 chicks that hatched out of the store bought egg hatch. Do you think they may be sex linked and if so would the dark or light be the pullets? Also what breed would you guess?

Cute little chicks.I'd say some sort of sexlink mixed.They probably have sex linked chickens since they are the best layers, or possibly a leghorn mix if they were white eggs.

Congrats on your cute little blond babies!


I would suspect that the hen was a red sex link as scgamecock said they are the leading brown egg layers.

If they are they won't be sex linked because that only works for a first generation cross. But they could carry Rhode Island Red, New Hampshire Red, and/or White Rock blood. You won't be able to tell their gender by their color but they should grow up to be nice big brown egg layers.

If they were sex linked the females would be the darker ones. It'll be interesting to see how they grow up!
