We got our first chicks today, after trying to find some pure breeds locally, (didn't want to pay the shipping for just a few chicks from the great suppliers out there) and having no luck, we finally settled for Tractor Supply. We wanted a few Black Australorps, but not finding them, we decided to go with some RIRs because TS said they had them and we were too excited to wait any longer for something more original. As long as they were pure bred, I was ok with that. The holding tank they were in said "Red Pullets" and I asked 3 different employees if these were indeed RIRs before we bought them. There was another holding tank with some full rust colored chicks, but those were labled "Straight Run" (which I already knew meant a gamble on the sex) and and the guys told me that no, those were mixed breed and the ones marked 'Red Pullets' were indeed RIRs. Anyway, after getting them home and looking at a few pics on the web, I think I got just what I was trying to avoid, a bunch of chicks that I have no idea what they are and possibly a mixed breed. Can any of you nice folks help me identify them? The guy said they are 6 days old, but who knows at this point. Please take a stab at it and many thanks!
