    I have two red sex links and one white rock. I'm pretty sure they're all girls but I just want to make sure. Here are the pics

    None of them are looking rooish yet but I would post again to confirm. You can tell if they are a rooster or not way before they really start to grow there spurs (by there combs and feathers), also all chicks have spur bumps.

    The RSLs are pullets. I'm not sure about the Rock, since they aren't an auto sexing color. You'll have to wait that one out, I'd be looking at the comb for the first indication of gender.
