is this sexlink a rooster

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I added 6 hens last Oct and am thinking this one is a rooster.  Looks different than the rest - stands taller, large tail feathers.  Also, I rescued another rooster, not a sexlink, and his posture is similar.  How do I tell?

That one is a rooster, but not a sex link - a black sex link rooster would be black and barred and a red sex link rooster would be white with red in the shoulders. Yours is probably a production red.

thanks, that is what I thought.  I guess we have 13 hens & 2 roosters.  will there be an issue with roosters?

There shouldn't be any trouble - multiple roosters can get along. Just make sure they aren't causing damage to the hens by overmating them like feather loss and injuries - if that happens you'll need to get more hens or rehome one of them.
