I can't see the photos either, but I can see the "recently posted images" on the side and they are definitely pullets!The photos aren't working for me for some reason. However, if your birds are mostly brown/gold, with only a little white on certain body areas, then they are definitely pullets. Male Red Sex-links are nearly pure white, with red splotches on their wings.
They are all pullets. Golden Sex Link is one of the labels under which some hatcheries (including Ideal Poultry) market their Red Sex Links. Ideal actually markets their Red Sex Links under several labels depending on which silver gene hen is used in the cross. Red Sex Links can sexed from hatching by color (males are whitish, females are reddish), and that color distinction remains with them throughout their lives. Adult males are whitish, usually developing a few reddish feathers in the saddle area, and adult females (like yours) are reddish with white underfluff and white feathers in the tail. Golden Sex Links, like all Red Sex Links are egg laying machines, outlaying either parent breed. It's one of the interesting quirks of hybridization. You will get loads of eggs from those two ladies. )
