Not even sure bread or gender

post #1 of 8

I was told this one was a red sex link. It has grown much much faster then my other chickens. Anyone want to guess rooster or hen? Does it look like a sex link?

Haha! Breed not bread. I'm pretty sure it's not a loaf 😜

It looks like a rooster to me :) I'm not sure about breed.

I'm feeling rooster too but if it's my seed link then it's suppose to a pullet. It could also be a Dixie rainbow, those were mixed. I know it's not a buff though. Those two I've figured out 😉

I think your loaf is a mixed breed. :)  Although it could be a black sexlink rooster (sexlinks are a mix of breeds).  I'm pretty sure it's a rooster.

Dixie rainbow makes sense, and would also explain why he's grown so fast. :)

 

A red sex link pullet will be red on the front and white at the tail. Have any like that?

 

Maybe it is a pumpernickel. LOL

These were all six of my chicks.

I'm still thinking pumpernickel is a contender 😉

In the first pic up above, the chicken on the left is probably one of my pullets if this guy is a rooster and Dixie rainbow.

I don't have hardly any experience with these guys, and there is a lot of variation with sex links because they can be mixes of different breeds.  Normally I'd suspect the chipmunk chick on the left as your sexlink, but I assume that's the chick that turned into your dixie rainbow/pumpernickel. :)  I'm going to guess that the red sex link is one of the two that are just a bit more shaded and a bit more reddish - on the top and the far right.  What did those two grow up to be?

 

Edit - just read your post more carefully.  Yes, the chicken on the left is likely your sex link. :)
