    TSC staff say they have no clue. I'm trying to identify via google search, but I figure this is my quickest bet. Thanks!

    1st brooder: "darkwing gry/blk"

    They look like Red sex links to me.

    You probably have Easter Eggers, Light Brown Leghorns, or Welsummers (the brown striped ones) and some Production Reds (the reddish ones).

    The chicks in the last photo may be Red Sex-links, too.

    I bought 13 pullets from TSC on Mar 6..they couldn't tell me one thing about what breed they were..so I decided they were "Elefinos".

    Thanks for the replys.

    I get frustrated at some farm stores, especially TSC. The staff are apparently not trained on "Chick Days", so I don't get upset with them, more at the business for not having a more efficient way. Seems to me if customers were able to know which breeds are available by properly marked brooders, and at least one employee (including management) could answer basic questions about poultry, they would sell more. When the employees don't even know how to close the box that they send the chicks home in, there clearly has been no training for what they try to make the major event of the year. Seems crazy to hold an event but not train employees to bring in the best profits. This is why so many are left there at 2 weeks old and reduced drastically just to move them.

    New brooder "Assorted, straight run", gotta love it.

    I'm wanting the one circled in green to be an Ameraucana or EE. I fell in love with it. It is the only one in the brooder with that color. It appears to have the muffs, as do the ones circled in blue. If it is an Americauna or EE, is there a way to distinguish male/female in them at this stage, or just have to take a chance?

    I circled them in different colors to distinguish the different colors of chicks to choose from, since they are all jumbled together. [VIDEO][​IMG]
