    I would say the first is a pullet (not sure what breed) and i would say boy for the second. I'm not very experienced in sexing chicks though.

    no a sex link is when they take 2 certain colors and breed them so the babies can be sexed by color. Your barred is a boy [​IMG]

    The first one I think is a BSL, like everyone else, which would make her a girl just by her coloring. The second one looks boyish, but I had trouble sexing my BRs, I don't see any pointy feathers, but that comb is HUGE and very red.

    Yes the one that looks more like a barred rock with the huge comb, has the leg markings of a female?
