    Or perhaps a red pyle game.

    He's what I would imagine a White Cornish - RIR cross would look like.

    Cross, he does favor a red sexlink. But isn't, maybe a sexlink cross though (Which would mean he's a cross of a cross).

    He's definitely an Amber sexlink.

    I bought 6 of them this spring thinking they were BOs.
    (Word to the wise don't ask the girl at TSC what kind of chick you have... UGH.)

    I did a lot of searching to figure out what they were as they were growing up.
    Here's what I found and a pic of my handsome boy.

    Here's Clovis.

    Here's a link to my Flickr set with all the photos from when they were growing up. Too cute.

    I would LOVE to see pics of those babies as I have Black Australrops he will be doing the dance of love for once they are old enough.

    Quote:Her little guy has a black tail though, i know often the coloration can be messed up on sexlinks. But i've never seen any of them possess a black tail. (mainly because most of the time, the crosses used do-not possess black tails. IE: Rhode island reds/whites). And even if the picture was enlarged he looks pretty small. Maybe part bantam. Just my guess though [​IMG].
