    I bought some chicks at TSC last week that were labled "Production Layers." They were supposed to be an assortment of Amber Link, White Leghorn, Commerical Black, Red Sex Link, Golden Comet, and Tetra Tint. The sales clerk was clueless to what they were and just kept pointing to the sign. They were all light yellow and although a day younger than the red pullet assortment also for sale, they were larger. Any idea of what kind of chicks I bought? Their wings are starting to feather out and are pale yellowish in color. They are still larger than the red pullets (bought some of those too) and are heavier as well.
