    ok so I'm very new to this. We just got these chicks at tractor supply today and the bin was only labeled pullets. Any idea of what kind they might be? Thanks!

    Funny. Just joined the site to find out the same thing. Bought mine in Ohio and they look the same. Think their red something.

    More than likely gold sex link. They have other names such as golden comets and gold stars.

    I saw similar ones at the local TSC a week back along with a couple bins of straight run specific breeds. I think what they're labeling as pullets are a hatchery choice of efficient egg layers which probably includes leghorn hybrids, sex links, or production hybrids To me, it looks like you have a couple different breeds.

    We did the same thing..these are our TSC chicks :} some of ours have the brown shading down the back and on the heads, while the others are more creamy yellow/white.
