    Hi everyone,
    I have a little chick that I got from TCS as a replacement because I had one to die after 2 days. She is supposed to be a girl and is light yellow with black spots all over her. We lovingly call her Miss Dottie [​IMG][​IMG].. Any information is appreciated

    Sounds like a Cornish X... my TSC got the chicks mixed up last year and I accidentally bought four Cornish Xs that were in the "pullets" bin (two of them were actually cockerels). Those are the only yellow spotted chicks that I've seen at TSC, although I've heard of "Austra Whites" being sold there.

    Cornish X are the meat birds and are all yellow/white... and they don't sex them. Are you thinking of Columbian Rock Cross?

    They were selling amberlinks at one of my local TSC and those were yellow with black spots.

    No, I was thinking of the Cornish X meat birds. Mine had spots and all of the ones I saw when I was at TSC recently had spots, although the spots are small and easy to miss. I know they don't sex them; the ones I bought had somehow gotten mixed up or mislabeled.
    I've never seen an Amberlink chick and didn't know that they sold them at TSC - I've never seen them in my local TSC - but if it was in the "pullets" bin and Amberlinks are yellow and white then that very well could be what it is.
    A photo would probably also help to determine the breed [​IMG]

    I don't know much about chickens yet, but my town had California white and they looked like that. I guess that breed is half leghorn...

    If they are that would pretty cool. I have read they are amazing producers but still pretty sweet.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about those! Yup, California Whites are yellow with spots like that. She isn't Columbian colored (not enough black) and she isn't solid white, so I'd say California White, Austra White, Amberlink, or Cornish X (unless there is another breed like that that I've forgotten. You probably won't know for sure for a couple weeks, though.
