    Where are they from? I think they are BSL pullets, mainly because of the colors.

    I got them from a local feed store. I was told they had barred rock in them.

    Pretty birds. :)

    Interesting. Do they all have that brown barring type look to them as that last photo?

  5. My understanding is that BSL (black sex link) does have a barred rock involved in the breeding, and that any male chicks hatched would be barred.

    Those are often used in BSL crosses, so they're probably that, or just plain mixes. They're cute anyway!

    In my experience with sex links, the males will have a white spot on their head and black and white barring unless it's a Rhode bar in which case it will have red bars also. Do you know if the bin said they were pullets only?

    Yes I was told they were all pullets. They have faint brown barring in their wings.

    That's not barring, just juvenile marking. They're sex links. ;)
