    I picked up six chicks from TSC. Two were Red production pullets, three were from a variety of sexed pullets, and one was a hand picked blue silkie from the bantam box. So I only KNOW I have a silke, and something two different looking from the red production pullets. So far from what I have read, out of the variety box I think I have a Delaware, a Cornish X, and ????? Here is a pic of the third I'm not sure about

    She's the furthest to the right in this picture. Her feathers look to be coming in white, and I thought she would be a red.

    She looks like a few of our chicks. We got them out of the Red pullet box. We KNOW they are not RIR. We think they are a production red.

    She might be a red sex link. They have those same stripes on their backs. I have 3 ad their feathers are coming in white as well. Hopefully they will darken some!
