    Im kind of new at this and have about 10 chickens. So this may seem stupid. The guy down the street was giving away four hens for free because he got 15 chicks he is raising so I jumped all over it. When I got home I threw them in coop and didnt pay no mind to them. I just let them out and they all have pretty long spurs but they look like hens. They are sex link RIR & white rock. Just seeing if any of you can ease my mind and say they are hens

    Thanks so much!!!!

    Yes that is a hen, a rooster of that cross would be white.

    Definitely a Red Sex Link hen. As Sunshine0235 said, Red Sex Link roosters are primarily white, typically with some reddish feathers in the saddle area.
