    I bought my first chicks last weekend, 3 Crested Polish, and 10 supposed Cornish Rock pullets. First of all, they had them listed as egg birds, not meat, and I didn't know any better and brought them home. After finding out that they were meaties, and that I'd likely have to dispatch soon, I was ok with that, and ordered breeds that I wanted from McMurray. Now that they are feathering, most are starting to have brown and black wings. Help! What are my chicks?

    TSC strikes again. I'm not certain what they are, but they are not Cornish X and probably are not meat birds.

    The brown on the wings literally showed up today, I had been thinking Delaware with the black. Now, not sure. I don't mind more chickens with not butchering at 3 Mos with the Cornish, obviously, I'd just like to know what they are.

    I am not sure what type you have but you may want to try and ask TSC which supplier they were/are using. That might help narrow it down.

    After some research in the forums, they all look like some New Hampshire Red pics that I've seen.

    I bought these chicks from Tractor Supply just wondering if anyone knows what they are? The people at my local tractor supply couldn't tell me what breed they are. Thanks!

    For clarity's sake - they are a cross between the RIR (or other gold based cock) and a silver based hen (RIW, SLW, etc) -- the chicks are sex links, not the female side of the crossing.

    So the chicks are red sex links? Tractor supply told me they were a cross between the two. Which made them an ISA brown. Can you clarify for me?
