    I ordered all girls but mistakes happen, I guess....What do you think of my 7 1/2 week old "girls"? Also, I did not include pics of my "Red Star", Kya (she's adorable but I thought I might be pushing my luck w/posting so many pics...) Anyhow, I was wondering if sex-links are always accurately sexed..?

    All pullets. And sexlinks are generally easy to sex by color. RSL pullets are reddish yellow at hatch and come in tan to red as they feather out. Cockerels are much lighter yellow at hatch (as all chicks who turn white are) and feather in predominantly white as they mature.

    I don't see any feathering that makes me think male at all yet.

    Looks like you have a beautiful batch of pullets. [​IMG] And about the red star, if it's a girl then it should be red with white on the back and tail, but if you still have any questions concerning it then feel free to post pics. Oh, and [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The Australorp is defo a pullet - I presently have all rooster Austras and they already had big huge bright red wattles and combs by 7 weeks - they're older now and still aren't as beautifully feathered as your ma'am is.
