    I got an order of chicks this morning and had a surprise chick in there. What breed? She's the darker golden chick. I was thinking maybe a golden sex link?

    Ya, she looks like some sort of red production type. But was she supposed to be something like a free exotic chick or a meal maker that some hatcheries send? Depending on what hatchery she came from, and what she came as, she might be something different.

    OK, the meal makers from Meyer are often some sort of really good brown egg layer, production red types. They have a red sex link they call a Golden Buff, wanna bet she is one of those.

    After looking around on the site, that was my thought as well. Thank you.
