    New to chickens. We have 6 golden sexlinks. They will be 6 weeks this wednsday. They are such characters! Who knew? So much fun! Can't wait to see the genders. When the rain stops I'll have to get some pics up so ya'll can clue me in on roos or hens. For now though here's a pic.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid your pic is not showing up. If they are sexlinks they should have been able to be sexed at hatch. What did it say when you bought them?

    Good luck with your future chicken adventures and enjoy BYC :frow

    Can't see combs on the bottom two birds, and things can change rapidly over the next couple of weeks. You can also post at "what breed or gender is this."

    [​IMG] We thought maybe this one would be a rooster because it's so different from the others.
