    Ok...I have some pullets,couple roos.I had asked before what people thought on here.I bought them a TSC,in the assorted reds bin...thought they were RIR, since thats what the guy there told us. [​IMG] obviously he was clueless too! LOL Anyway...I have had suggestions from NHRs to Sex link,and mixes. I know they came from Privett in New Mexico.I did find that out. I have done some research now,and I don't think they are sex link,cause now I have read that sex link roos would be white...mine are not.And my pullets are not looking like the sex link colors at all now. [​IMG] So by looking at pics and comparing I have it narrowed down now to all most certain [​IMG] .... does anyone have pics I could see of some Red Sussex...or New Hampshire Reds?? Or does anyone have a list of what chicks Privett would have in assorted reds?? I really want to know what I have....it has killed me for the last 2 months. [​IMG]
    THANKS!!!! [​IMG] I love BYC!!! [​IMG]

    I might add....they grew pretty fast and eat like crazy!! That might be a trait of a breed or something. [​IMG]

    Is it possible that they are red broilers? I think I saw the pictures you posted and they look identical to the red broilers I got from Privett.

    Quote:UH-Oh!! [​IMG] Seriously,I hope not...we were wanting egg layers. [​IMG] Ok,now I really need to find out what I got,so I can know to either keep them or slaughter them for the freezer. [​IMG] Well my hubby will,I can't bring myself to do such a thing. [​IMG] Cause broilers are for meat,not eggs. No more TSC chicks for me,unless I know what I'm buying... [​IMG] We live and learn I guess if you're right. lol

    Hey, I could definitely be wrong, or there could be another breed that looks similar that they sell. Don't go making dumplings based on my statement [​IMG] .

    Privett and Ideal are essentially the same. I think they are family and whatever one doen't have the other might so the orders could be filled from either place. I need some pics to help you out though.

    Do you have any pics? I have RIR's and red sex links... I could at least see if they look like either of them. And I wouldnt count the sex links out yet if you dont have a white rooster... I have a red sex link hen who's white as snow, she looks like she should be a roo!
