    Ok, 1st of all, the red and gold chickens that you have are gold Sex-links. Sex-links (hence the name) can be sexed at hatch. I think (not positive) the hens have like a white dot on their heads and the roosters don't. And when they get older, the roosters are mostly all white and the hens are red and white (except in black sex-links). SO all your gold Sex-links are hens. [​IMG]

    Only one I would be worried about is the one with the most white. It looks female at this time but could turn out to be a roo. Its still most likely a female though. the rest are definitely female.

    our gold sexlink males are pure white. No gold.

    as chicks, the roosters are yellow, the pullets are golden-yellow.

    Yep one the white dot on black is a male. I got a solid black one and she is a she. On the red sex link the female is darker with the stripes on the back and the males are a lighter yellow color. My uncle has a male red SL and he is already way lighter in color then your light one.

    Good luck with your gals.!!!
