    Is the chick with the yellow head a roo? They are gold sex-links, I know color is how you sex them but this chick is the lightest out of the 5 i got. there is red/gold race stripes on it with red/gold tinting on wings but is very light.... anyone out there have any guess to what the chick might be or will I have to just wait. thanks!

    They both look like girls to me. Girls can be streaked with gold and a redish tint. Boys would be all white.

    its a girl because the feathers are grown out and a rooster would have shorter feathers at that age

    i am not 100% but the one on the right may be a roo because his legs are longer and thicker looking in your pic. I have also been told you can sex them by looking at their wing, there are 2 rows of feathers on their wings, if the rows are the same length its a roo, if they are 2 different lengths its a hen

    both are girls. if they were boys they would have laughably short wing feathers at this stage.
