Opinions on whether this is a pullet or roo? About 11-12 weeks old.

Did you get this bird from a hatchery or private individual?

I picked her/him up at a feed store when it was a couple days old.

If your feed store got the chicks from a hatchery then it is a pullet. The whole point of sex links is to produce chicks that can be sexed by down color. Female red/gold sex link chicks are reddish in color and males are white. The sex linkage works for one generation only.

 

Now if they got chicks from someone breeding sex link to sex link the answer could be different.
