    Not sure where to post this - I have 2 Red sex links. Either one is way faster at maturing, or I have a rooster on my hands. They are both the same age. The "pseudo"roo talks the most out of all four girls. No signs of aggressive behavior. In fact, this one is the most shy. What's your take? The are both around 4 months old.


    This is the other red sex link

    And the potential roo?

    Besides having to re-home he/she if he/she is a roo, it will be exciting because that means I CAN GET MORE CHICKS!!

    Hen. A red sexlink male is almost all white with red in the pyle/wing regions. Sexlinks are bred so the males and females are different colors and can be sexed at hatch. No mixups that way.
