    These are my Rhode Island Red chicks. They're about seven weeks old. Can anyone hazard a guess at their gender? [​IMG][/IMG]

    The significant amount of white showing indicates these are not purebred rhode island reds. Were they sourced from a hatchery, feed/farm store, private breeder or backyard flock? They white *could* indicate they are red sex links (in which case they would be pullets)- but they aren't really looking entirely like RSL either. Any chance you can take them out to natural lighting and get a different photo - would be interested in whether the blush that seems to be showing in the comb/wattles is there or just a function of this photo....a nice shot from the side is very helpful in assessing gender.
