    I was also supposed to have one gold sex link pullet in the bunch and I can't tell which one she is. Anyone have any advice? I'll get better photos of the pullets and packing peanuts together later. I did find one chick that was red like these roos but he/she has a dark dot on her head and a dark streak (but not as dark or wide as a chipmunk streak) down her back. Could that be my GSL pullet or is that another variation of production red or RIR roos? Thanks!

    If I were you, I'd be sooo bummed. [​IMG] I'd at least want pretty roosters to cull for food.

    I second the notion of Production Red.

    Rhode Island Reds. No doubt about it.

    I think RIR because I just got 16 production red pullets and some of them have a little bit of faint chickmonk (sp?) patterns on them. Sooo cute!
