    about 3-4 months I believe. I was given a batch of hens and I have 2 of these white with rust/copper markings.

    It's a cockerel, and probably a Red Sex-Link.

    The color pattern makes me think Red Sex-link rooster.

    I agree. If so, then your other one with the same color pattern, is a RSL rooster as well. Can you get a picture of the other one?

    Agree that color screams rooster, but I believe that bird is more like 2 months? I'm puzzled by the lack of comb, most red sex link males are pretty proud of their combs very early.
