    one looks cockerelish to me (the one on the left in the second pic).


    ETA:: which if it is a cockerel means it's not a sexlink... and maybe a production red. If it IS a cockerel it's not a sexlink because if it was a red sexlink the roo would be white/yellow.

    If they are RSLs, wouldn't a cockerel be mostly white? I think they are both pullets.

    One does seem to have alot more white then the other one does. This is why I think roo and also in size and comb size gives me my guess on why i think one is a roo.

    They both look like red sex-links. Too much white going on to be production reds. If they are sex-links, they are both pullets. WAY too much red to be cockerels. My RSL cockerels started off pure white, then got a few red feathers in their wings and hackle feathers only.

    I'm saying two pullets. I had a red sex link hen that had huge legs... when we got rid of our crowing dellie roo, she took over trying to crow... but she laid a double yolker almost every week. We ended up rehoming her because she got too noisy.
