    Ok so my black australorp "pulley" turned out to be a roo so I'm paranoid about my GSL. I've read the girls will be more gold/red and the boys will be white but I just want to check here. This is Rose, 4 weeks old on Friday 2days ago.

    Yup, that's a pullet. Males are mostly white with only a little red on the wings.

    Definitely a pullet. Red Sex-link roosters are a different color.

    If she really is a sex link, meaning she came from a hatchery or was a first generation cross from a breeder that understood the genetics involved, she is indeed a pullet.

    @donrae she came from a chicken breeding farm as a "golden sexlink". Glad to hear she is indeed a she!

    Assuming she is a Golden Sex Link (one of many labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links), she is definitely a pullet.
