    Sunday March 15th I bought 3 gold and 3 black sexlink chicks from tractor supply store. These are the first time that I have owned chickens. All chicks were supposed to be females. At first I thought I had a male bit after talking to people some of them say it's a black sexlink rooster. Others have said barred rock hen. I would love someone to help me out. If it is a barred rock can someone tell me if it's a boy or girl. The other two black ones are solid back with black beaks and black feet. This one has yellow beak with black line in the middle and yellowish feet. And you can see the marking.

    If it is a barred rock you won't be able to tell gender by looking at it at this age.

    Barred Rock, but it is too young to tell gender.

    But, I'm leaning towards pullet based off of color.
