Red Star pullet?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
She (?) is 5 1/2 weeks old and I'm confused by the feathers sticking up near the tail/lower back. I have another chick who sometimes has feathers sticking up like this but sometimes they are laid down. This particular chick, those feathers are always fluffed up like this.

All sexlinks are sexed by color at hatch. A red sexlink female is red, male is white. There is no mistaking gender, it's 100% accurate. That is a pullet.

I purchased them as "pullets", breed unknown, 2 days old. They were yellow with varying degrees of two brownish strips on their backs. I posted on here and a couple people said they looked like Red Stars, so I'm not positive on that.

Yep, that's a red sex link (red star) pullet. Those ruffled feathers are likely something she'll outgrow.
