    Delaware...very light yellow, looks white in the picture

    I have 5 Black sex links...order 2 so I assumed the extra 3 were males, but they don't have the white spot on the head.
    The 2 BR do have the white on the head, and they are the only ones.

    Have 5 of the NHR...I'm assuming 3 are males, ordered 2 females.

    I don't know what the mystery chicks are, they are two, lighter in color then the NHR but the same type of markings.

    I also order 2 IA Blues and have no idea which ones they are, thought they would be dark in color since they are darker when the feather out..anyone know?

    I know the rest of the chicks, because I've raised them in the past..and cochins are pretty easy to spot..Original order..3 Ameraucanana,2 NH Reds,2 Golden lace Cochin, 2 Delaware,2 BSS, 2 BR, and 2 IA blue..all pullets.

    I'm questioning the BSS, and the mystery chicks..

    Thanks

    If I remimber right the white spot on the head means cockerel so the Sex Links would be pullets & for the others I have no idea.

    If the Black Sex-link has white on the wings then it might be a Black Australorp. A full body shot would be better.

    See I have had Black sex links in the past...still have one of my girls..I love them.
    All these chicks have the black legs, but the Iowa Blue chicks look the same as the BSL (the chicks) so two of them have to be the Iowa's...I just don't remember my girls- sex links, having any white except on thier bellys. Will have to take some pictures outside tomorrow, better lighting.

    After searching the web some more think I solved the mystery of the 6 black chicks..2 have white dots, Barred Rocks, so 2 have to be the Iowa Blues and 2 BSL...will have to wait until they get older to really tell them apart...[​IMG]

    So I guess I still have one question..for those of you who raise New Hampshire Reds...are the pullet chicks a lighter color..because that would explain the same marking but lighter color in 2 of the six "red" chicks..the last 5 darker ones would be the male packing peanuts....[​IMG]

    Sorry if I'm confusing everyone ...confused myself..lol
