Hens or roosters?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
We have two 10wk old amber links and can't tell their genders. We're leaning towards one rooster (larger comb) one hen but we really hope we don't have 3 roosters!

Both are roosters sad.png They look like male sex links and with that much comb and wattles at 10 weeks I would say there's no way they're pullets even if they're not.

Those look like male red sexlinks. Amberlinks are a feathering sexlinks, where the males take longer to feather in than the pullets. With combs as red as that, at only 10 weeks old, both are definitely male.
