All pullets, if they were cockerels they would have white barring.

X 2 - if they are, in fact BSL (Black Sex Links) then these are all pullets.  The beauty of a sex link is that they have a sex linked characteristic - in the case of black and red sex links it is their color.  Male black sex links have a dot on the top of their head as chicks and feather in barred (black and white pattern) -- female black sex links have no dot and feather in mostly black with copper leakage around the neck, chest and sometimes throughout the body.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?
