I have a golden sex link pullet. I was wondering how males are told from females at hatch. Also, is it possible for males to be mistaken for female? My GSL is feathering much slower than my RIR and EE of the same age. She is also a bit smaller than the two, could this be an indication of a male? I guess I just don't know much about GSLs and I was hoping for some better information on them then I have been able to find so far.

Between 5-6 weeks. Does she even look like a normal GSL? She has more pale colored feathers than I thought they would have.

I believe you have a pullet. The males are mostly WHITE w/ a tad of brown on the wings. I mistakenly got a male when I purchased a female from Ideal. They are suppose to be able to tell when they hatch, one is suppose to be darker than the other but they obviously goof once in a while.

Mine is around 4 months old and always has been the smallest of my flock. So I think it is normal. I got a replacement for the male that I received and she is on the small side too.

I hope that helps you.

You have a girl there, no doubt. I had to GSL's and they both looked different. One was dark like yours, and the other was mainly cream with a dark head.
