    we don't know much about them...we think they are 6-7 weeks old and have no idea what breed they are.

    any ideas?

    Can you get close-up pics of them. Their patterns look almost millie-fluer (the redder ones).

    Quote:They are most likely Red Sex-links or Rhode Island Reds. As chicks these birds tend to have some white-ish/light brown specks on their feathers.

    probably a dumb newbie question but am i right in thinking that i can't tell the sex of a sex-link at this age without knowing what the parents were?

    do i just have to wait and see now if i have any roos?

    Quote:no, i mean i thought that it was just the color of the peeps which helped you sex them. since i got them at about 5-6 weeks old and don't know what color they were that doesn't help me does it? or does it?

    is it not possible to get red sex-link males? i'm happy to accept that they're all girls or probably girls if that's what their color means, i just didn't think it meant anything at this stage. am i wrong?

    Im pretty sure "if" those are sex links.. they are pullets however.. after looking at the pictures up close.. they almost have a Mille Fluer D'Uccle pattern..
