    Bought some flea market eggs and hatched them. Got this one and three looking like they are going to be white. Any clue as to what it may be. [​IMG]

    Its too young to tell the breed. If you got it from a flea market, its likely mixed and not a pure breed. Post more pictures when it gets older and has its feathers in. Then, it will be easier to tell the breed/breed mix.

    Was it red as a young chick? Were the three birds that look like they are going to turn out white a whitish yellow? If so, you could have Red Sex-Links.
