    Hi! I first have to say I love this site! I'm in love with my chickens and I never knew there was so much to learn about chickens. I have 7 total that I got as babies in September. 2 are 20 weeks (cocoa and buttercup) the rest we got two weeks later (scarlett, angek, sunshine, cherry, and cleoptra). I thought I might have one or two roos, then I was told all pullets. Well I cracked a couple eggs this morning and they were fertilized (totally had the bullseye spot) so it's driving me crazy who the roo is! I'll post pics of everyone (they are hard to photograph) but the first two are my best guess as who the roo is. Any advice or help is welcomed! Let me know if you need more pics.

    All look like pullets to me--are you sure the egg is fertilized?

    I posted a pic of the egg that is fertilized, does it look fertilized to you?

    Do you have any full body shots of your red sexlinks in natural lighting?

    It looks like it, but I'm not an expert in telling that.
