    I got 3 baby chicks at TS just labeled as pullets. They are black and have a little white. Feather ends have a little white on them too.i thought black sex linked but since the feather tips on this one are white, does that happen on black sex linked babies? Also the black ones are much friendlier that the red sex linked ones I purchased.[​IMG]

    Yes, black sexlinks can have white wing feathers when they first start to feather in. Those white feathers will molt out by 6 to 8 weeks.

    Thankyou! I wanted a variety of colors so with the red sex linked, black sex link and the 4 week old barred rocks I should have a colorful mix I think.
