    I thought the roos were silver based? That chick looks pretty gold to me, I'm thinking just a lighter sex-link?

    Hmmm...I honestly have never seen RSL chicks, I just know that RSL males are white with the red coloring over the shoulder area. [​IMG]

    anyone want male ones?? seriously...if they turn out to be roos..

    wonder what the hatchery would say if I called them in a few weeks and told them they are all roos when they were
    supposed to be sexed as pullets??

    Just give them time, I have raised many red sexlinks and at first the pullets are mostly white and eventually they end up mostly red. [​IMG]
