We got them from my daughter's school they did an Illinois farm hatching program
And my neighbor also did the same program and she ended up with White leghorns and brown mutts
We kept one white Leghorn from her
And the black chick is very heavy and the bottom of her feet are black

I am surprised at the number of school hatching projects I hear about on BYC!
I think yours are too young to tell what sex. In a couple of weeks, take better pics that are easier to discern the details, and I think we'll be able to give you a good idea.

They will be four weeks soon also my two leftover white Leghorn seem to be roosters since they have huge Combs and are red already and still no tails but definitely will post when they are 6 weeks

I'm not much help but want to follow along. I have one that looks very similar to this so I'm interested in what others think. I've somewhat come to the conclusion that it's a black sex link, but am far from an expert lol. If I'm not mistaken, the black sex link with have a white spot on their head if it's a male? Am I right anyone? Mine didn't so I'm wondering??
