    Hey all, I got some Colombian Rock x RIR straight run chicks from the local co-op this year. I think quite a few of them are pullets, but would appreciate everyone’s opinions as to gender.

    I'm thinking #30 is the only for sure cockerel I see... Can you post more pictures of the saddle area?

    30 is a cockerel, but how old are these guys?

    They’re all pullets. A Columbian type cock over Red Columbian hens yields Sex Links.

    Do we know which one was the hen? Also I thought he said RIR. Typically would that crossing not also make these all male as the Columbian rock x RIR is a sex link that's white for male and red for female?

    Hm.... A white dominant rooster over a red hen does not produce sex links... the other way round does. If you put a red rooster over a white dominant hen you get sex links.
