    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.

    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!!

    You might get more responses if you post in the "what breed or gender is this?" thread under the breeds, genetics and showing catagory.
    BTW, red sexlinks: if they are red, they are females.

    Looks like a production red pullet to me.

    They are both red sex link females. Red sex link roosters are a different color, usually white.
