Is this a Black Sex link pullet????

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

What breed and pullet or cockerel for the 2 darker chicks in the photos?  Both are 4 weeks old today.  Was told the black chick is a black sex link pullet, but I have another one that is the same age, and it has a longer tail and less developed comb than this one.  Could this be a cockerel?  Thoughts on the other dark chick?  I suspect that one is a pullet, but any idea on the breed?

I answered you on the other thread.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

The chick on the left appears to be a Black Australorp rather than a Black Sex Link and given the size and redness of its comb at that age, I'm leaning toward cockerel. The chick on the left appears to be a Golden Laced Wyandotte. At this point I'm thinking pullet, but it's really too young to sex with any high degree of accuracy.

X2. It's very hard to tell gender at this age. Can you post undated photos in a few weeks?

Will post updated pics in a couple of weeks.  Thanks everyone!  Sorry about the double post.  I didn't think it had posted and then both of them did.
