    This is a sex-link (mom)/ Black Copper Maran (dad) cross. I thought it was a girl when it was younger, but then it's comb seemed to be large so I assumed it is a roo. I just took this picture to put it on KSL to re-home him, and looking at the pictures, I am not seeing any noticeable pointy saddle/hackle feathers. I don't want to get rid of him, if it is a girl, so i just want to make sure that he is really a he. [​IMG] They are 15 weeks old.

    Rooster, yes. As to being a sex-link, I am not sure.

    The way I read the post, she's not asking if the chicken is a sex-link, she's simply stating that the mom of the chicken in the picture is a sex-link.
