TubbyChicken and I got some chicks today at TSC! They had just come in when we got there. The employees didn't know what chicks were which breeds.

What breed and/or sex are these? We got two of each kind.

1.













2.






3.






4.






And we impulsively got ducks too...not sure yet how that will work out.

Anyone? I really hope we bought pullets...I'm thinking the black with white on the face are black sex link and the golden, chimpunky ones are golden or amber sex links.

The ducks are Giant White Pekins (sp?) and Mallards, no? can you sex them this early?

If they were straight run they would not be sexlinks.
The white ducks are probably pekins and the colored ones look like mallards or rouin (sp?) to me.

I dont know about the chicks.

Quote:They couldn't tell us where they were from or what they were...One person told us the box with both black chicks and amber chimpunky chicks was labeled "sex link" we're worried that some of the chicks were sex links that came with males and we picked those up as well...I have no idea what the yellow chicks are so if anyone can identify those I would be so thankful...One has what looks like a tiny thumbprint on it's head.

Could the white chicks be White Plymouth Rocks? TSC said they think the chicks come from Mt. Healthy, and they have that breed.

I think the striped darker gold ones are Golden Comets. With Golden Comets which are the pullets---the ones with the darker chipmunk stripes or the solid colored ones? We got the striped ones, so I hope those are the pullets.


I have another Barred Rock chick and it doesn't look exactly like the black chick. But Australorps chicks I thought had more white on them than that black one? Could it be a black sex link? I haven't looked up pictures of those yet.

And I have no clue what the red faced black ones are, but the manager said that they didn't get any cornish chicks.

If the #2 chicks are Barred Rocks, why don't they have white spots on their heads? Does that mean that they are roosters or pullets? The Barred Rock pullet I have (not from the feed store) has an undefined white spot on her head, but these black chicks have absolutely no spot. None of the little black chicks they had did.
