    Two months ago my family had purchased chicks. Four (supposedly) buff orpingtons, two black sexlink and the lady at the store called the last one a mystery chick.

    As they grew the buff orpington chicks did not seem to look like what they were supposed to be, yet the black sexlinks were exactly what the feed store promised.

    Below is a picture of one of the four pullets. They are extremely friendly and will jump on your arm or shoulder if given the chance. Yet, they get slightly aggressive towards the black sexlinks time to time.

    And this is the mystery chick, she acts very bantam like but I'm not positive on what exactly she is.

    Thank you!

    I see to BSL pullet, a Rhode Island Red pullet, and what type of comb does the mystery bird have?

    Thank you! And the mystery one has a regular single comb, similar to that of the other pullets.

    The first bird looks like a white laced red Cornish....kind of. Maybe it's hatchery quality, but the body shape doesn't look right. What kind of comb does she have?

    The other birds are black sex links and hatchery Rhode Island Red.

    And everyone is female [​IMG]
