    Just wondering if anybody has any pics of Golden Sex Links they might want to post? We have 8 that are two weeks old and I was wondering how much variety they have as they get older.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    You asked for it [​IMG] Here are mine. They all looked quite different, some are big and fluffy others small and compact, one was built like a football player! Weights ranged from about 3-7 pounds.

    Thanks Ella! Your's are great looking chickens!

    Well, I found out today that the combo that these Sex Links are: White Leghorn and Rhode Island Red.

    I was very happy to hear this, as I like the strengths of both breeds, I think it is a great combination! I will have to take some pics this weekend and post them so far at 2 weeks. Also, I have noticed today that 2 of the 8 chicks have more greenish legs and the rest are light orangish.

    Would that indicate anything?

    Thanks again!

    My supposedly sex link baby has dirty-looking white (or cream?) wing feathers with a few pale cinnamon feathers at the shoulders.... It doesn't look like any other sex-link chicks I've seen pictures of

    I was worried about the one on the left, she was light yellow/cream for the longest time. Look at her now! I love these dang GSL's.
