    Hello I got 6 chicks from tractor supply. I was told they were unsexed golden sex links. Can anyone help me determine the sex. I am new at this.Two of them are a bit bigger than the rest and have more white in their feathers than the rest. I would appreciate the input. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Since they are sex links, it's possible to say with 100% certainty they are all pullets :) Only pullets feather in red like that, and at this age roosters would look very different and would have visible combs and wattles. It's actually not possible to really have 'unsexed' sex links, since the genders hatch different colors. If they were red as chicks, they are all females. Males hatch yellow :)

    Thank you. I was hoping they were all pullets.
