    Hi, we went to tractor supply to start our new spring flock, we bought 5 Red Pullets(thats what is said on the sign) 2 RIR, 1 White Pekin Duck, and 1 Golden sexlink. Here is the golden sexlink:

    And here are the RIRs and Red Pullets: (Can you tell me the breeds of the striped ones and tell me if the golden sexlink is a male or female?)

    I'm guessing your "red pullets" are either production reds or Cinnamon Queens... or some other type of red sex link.

    The "GSL" could be a male because I think the males are born white and the females are reddish.

    Are the Golden Sexlink Roosters Friendly?
