    I have both rsl and Americauna...........the Americauna's will never develop much of a comb.

    Your rsl is a girl. I've had both and the males are mostly buff.

    Relax.........enjoy your girl.

    It's a pullet. Red sexlink males are mostly white.

    She probably has coccidiosis, common at that age. You need Corid which is concentrated amprolium ASAP.

    If the chick is actually a red sex-link, it is a pullet. Cockerels are almost white in color. The reason I used the word "actually" is because some places mix up the chicks that sell, and what you think you bought is actually another breed.
