Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Snowball19, Sep 8, 2014.
We we're give two chicks in June and need to know if hens or rooster? Can any one help?
They are both Red Sex Link hens. Red Sex Link hens are egg laying machines. )
That's great news thank you
I too Agree, I heard that Chicks that grow their tail earlier than Other chicks are likely to be a rooster. I have not raised chicks sense I heard about it but it sound reasonable to me.
Red Sex Link gender is easy to identify by color. Males are white with a few reddish feathers in the saddle area; females are reddish with white underfluff (like these).
Actually, as a general "rule" at about the 2 week mark in most breeds the chicks that have tails coming in are female and those without are male. Males, in general, tend to feather out more slowly than females. This should never be seen/used as a hard and fast method to determine gender, but it is one tool in the toolbox that a lot of folks use in making those early guesses on non sex-linked birds.
You're welcome. Good luck on getting lots of eggs. )
Would u mind if I piggyback on this thread. Raised these babies from eggs.
No idea who is a boy and who is a girl
Would really appreciate any help
Should say they are about 16 weeks old
