    I purchased a run of Golden Buffs and Broilers at the same time....
    I believe I have 7 hens and 3 roosters that are Golden Buffs...but then I read that some Golden Buffs can come across more on the white side...UGH!
    The ones that I believe are roos definitely have "red highlights" near the neck and wing tips....
    Any help?
    The Broilers are obviously larger, but the broilers are medium to large size...(I'm thinking hen and rooster)
    They are all 7 weeks old as of July 1.

    Quote:They are a sexlink I believe. If that is the case it should be simple to tell their sex. They would have looked very different as chicks. The pullets are reddish when hatched, and the roosters are white. Were they different as chicks?
