    Gold sex link females should be mostly red with white under fluff, and they don't have muffs. Are you sure yours isn't an EE? What color are the legs?

    i bought her with an ameracauna but it was obviously an ameracauna. Also the other sexlinks i have bought look the same as chicks solid yellow, but theyre getting red. i can try to post the url so you can see her. http://plixi.com/p/82869040 and http://plixi.com/p/82865277

    Quote:definitely EE.

    ETA: Or Ameracauna, I've never actually seen a Ameracauna before so idk. The legs are blue/green, if she was a gold sexlink her legs wouldn't be that color.

    i would agree if she wasnt solid yellow as a chick, becuase the only pix of EE chicks ive found that are solid yellow are silver ameraucana or lavender, or blue ameraucana. the ameraucana has a distinctive pattern. Ill also have a better idea when she starts laying. but shes the only gold sexlink i have that is yellow! shes very bossy. and dislikes all the other chickens, she prefers her dogs :] i also bought ameraucanas when i bought her and they were all the same almost. the gold sexlink pullets i have right now look perfectly like she did but of course they are getting red feathers.
