    Is this a Roo...supposed to be a hen...but had 2 long pointed tail feathers that the other ROO (that was supposed to be a hen) pulled out. The other Roo is a Leghorn and even though they are the same age the Leghorn looks fully matured already. The chick is supposed to be a Golden Sex Link (that is what it was listed as at the farm store)![​IMG]

    Quote:So these are all names for the same kind of chicken? Do all the hatcheries just use a different name for a Rhode Island red roo over a Rhode Island white hen? It is very confusing for us newby chicken lovers!

    I have a gold sex link from Ideal that looks just like this one. She had a couple long tail feathers that she lost at about 16 weeks. She is now 19 weeks old and just gave us her first egg yesterday.[​IMG]
