    So someone local posted on craigslist that they got 6 chicks in with their batch of turkeys, and were giving them away. Going to pick them up now, pictures in the morning!


    Nevermind :) They are very obviously Barred Rocks :)

    If they turn out to be black sex links then yes, I do expect them to be all roos. If they are, they will live in the freezer. They were free, so we will find a use for them :)
